Summer Reservations Heating Up in Steamboat Springs

Word must be getting around that the Steamboat Springs ski mountain base area will soon be unveiling the new pedestrian promenade with Burgess Creek flowing through it. As reported in the Steamboat Today newspaper, Sheraton’s Director of Sales & Marketing is projecting the number of room nights driven by destination weddings will be up 22% this summer. In addition, revenues from convention groups are anticipated to increase around 18% as the nature of group bookings shifts from recreation oriented groups to corporations and professional associations holding multi-day meetings, trainings and conventions here.

Another potential positive is the news from Chris Diamond, Steamboat Ski Corp. President and COO, that his team is contemplating adding Thursday evenings for gondola operations to the current Friday and Saturday nights. This will mean more opportunities for dinners and special events on the mountain, and a chance for more people to enjoy sunsets and views of the Yampa Valley 2,000 feet below.
