More than 10,000 visitors expected in town Saturday







Approximately 10,300 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association's lodging barometer released Wednesday.

The figure represents 65 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 72 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 71 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 63 percent full.

Lodging is expected to decrease to 6,300 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.
