Approximately 11,000 visitors are expected to be in town today, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association's lodging barometer released Wednesday.
The figure represents 76 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 96 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 80 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 75 percent full.
Lodging is expected to increase to 11,700 visitors by Wednesday.
The chamber's lodging barometer is based on survey data from local lodging properties. Its primary function is to help businesses determine staffing levels during the winter and summer tourism seasons. Actual lodging occupancy levels tend to increase from the forecast levels as a result of last-minute bookings.
