More than 12,000 visitors expected in town today

Approximately 12,100 visitors are expected to be in town today, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer released Wednesday.

The figure represents 77 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 85 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 84 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 72 percent full.

Lodging is expected to decrease to 8,400 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.
