At the moment, wait times for hot tub orders in Tahoe are up to six months long. Before the pandemic, the wait was about three weeks.

“So they’re buying toys. They wanted to all buy hot tubs. But you have to understand what happened. The plant was shut down.”


“We have an enormous amount of tubs on backorder,” Pomin said. “Marquis picked up the pace since the pandemic. It’s been more under control. It’s still not in a great place, but it's getting better, let’s put it that way.”


“We just got a shipment last week of six spas, so we got some happy customers,” she said. “And we’re just progressing as best as we can.”
