Steamboat lodging barometer predicts 80 percent capacity – Colorado News

About 11,400 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, Aug. 12, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer released Wednesday.

The figure represents 80 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 91 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 73 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 79 percent full.

Lodging is expected to dip to 7,200 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.

Coffee with Council scheduled for Friday, Aug. 11

Coffee with Council will be held from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 11 in the Crawford Room of Centennial Hall, 124 10th St. The August session will discuss the city of Steamboat Springs’ role in mitigating the impact of tourism as well as the economic footprint of tourism on jobs, household income and sales tax. No RSVP is necessary, and community members are invited to drop by to discuss any issues of interest to them. Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
