Steamboat briefs: More than 10K visitors expected in Steamboat Springs today







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

The figure represents 66 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 96 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 67 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 61 percent full.

Lodging is expected to increase to 10,400 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.

Author, naturalist Terry Tempest Williams to speak

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an evening with author Terry Tempest Williams at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 28, in Library Hall.

Tempest Williams will speak about her new book, “The Hour of Land,” an ode to our national parks during the celebration of the National Park Service centennial. Doors for this free event will open at 6 p.m.

Through 12 carefully chosen parks, from Yellowstone in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine to Big Bend in Texas, Tempest Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making.

Part memoir, part natural history and part social critique, “The Hour of Land” is a meditation and manifesto about why wild lands matter to the soul of America — how our national parks stand at the intersection of humanity and wildness.

At this Library Author Series event, books will be available for sale and author signing. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
