and#8220;Itand#8217;s common for ski resort hotels and has been part of the plan from the beginning,and#8221; said Steven Holt, director of public relations. and#8220;The ski industry is very hard on the building itself so weand#8217;ll be refinishing the floors, deep cleaning, spring cleaning.and#8221;

While Holt said the practice is common at resort hotels in places like Colorado, whether the Ritz-Carlton Highlands will do it every year is still undecided.

The closure is part of the hotel employeeand#8217;s seasonal employment, Holt said, so while maintenance staff will be working through the closure, others will not.
