Chamber hopes for late bookings

Steamboat Springs resort community will hope the changing aspen leaves drive late bookings this weekend. About 5,000 visitors are expected to spend the night here Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s weekly lodging barometer.

Steamboat saw 1,900 late arrivals on the corresponding Saturday in 2009, when the Chamber’s early forecast of 6,200 visitors swelled to 8,100 actual guests.

The Chamber issues its lodging barometer Wednesday every week during winter and summer tourism seasons to help its members prepare their staffs for the weekend.
