Steamboat briefs: More than 11,000 visitors expected for weekend
August 8, 2015
About 11,500 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association's lodging barometer released Wednesday.
The figure represents 73 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 96 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 84 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 63 percent full.
Lodging is expected to dip to 5,500 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.
