Steamboat briefs: Lodging barometer predicts more than 10K visitors Saturday
September 14, 2017
About 10,800 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, Sept. 16, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association's lodging barometer released Wednesday.
The figure represents 75 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 91 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 81 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 70 percent full.
Lodging is expected to dip to 6,700 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.
