July 30, 2007 By: Dan Butcher Travel Agent

Vail Resorts makes inroads into top competitor's territory

The already-intense rivalry between Vail Resorts and Aspen
Skiing Company just ratcheted up a notch, as the former will take over
management of an Aspen landmark that is on the National Register of Historic
Place and a charter member of the Historic Hotels of America.

Elysian Worldwide, LLC and Lodging Capital Partners, LLC,
both headquartered in Chicago, IL, recently announced that they have selected
RockResorts International, LLC, to manage the operations of the 92-room Hotel
Jerome in Aspen, CO, RockResorts, a luxury hotel company headquartered in
Broomfield, CO, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vail Resorts, Inc. In addition
to management of the luxury hotel, its five dining venues and its grand
ballroom, RockResorts will help Elysian and Lodging Capital try to make the
transition to their role as the historic hotel's owners as smooth as possible.
RockResorts recently announced that Judson Hawk has been selected as the new
general manager of the Hotel Jerome.
