Steamboat briefs: More than 11,000 visitors expected in town this weekend

Approximately 11,200 visitors are expected in town Saturday, Sept. 3, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer released Wednesday.

The figure represents 71 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 100 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 86 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 58 percent full.

Lodging is expected to decrease to 4,900 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.
