Brody King

About 13,259 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer.

The figure represents 84 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 100 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 83 percent capacity and condos are expected to be 82 percent full.

Lodging is expected to dip to 9,817 on 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.
