Featured: HD Relay Live Cams at Steamboat Resort in Colorado
The Ski Area, the Yampa and Elk Rivers, and nearby wilderness make it a great year-round outdoors destination, and the friendly community makes the town really special.
This week, I want to feature Steamboat because they are successfully using HD Relay live camera hosting services to entice visitors and increase bookings. They’ve stirred up the top three ingredients for a successful web cam: a gorgeous destination, great video quality and a sprinkle of creativity. The resulting concoction leaves outdoor enthusiasts like me drooling (Seriously, why am I writing this instead of packing up my board!?).
Yes, 24 hour live streaming is a powerful way to lure in your audience and increase bookings/sales. Here is what Steamboat has to say about what makes their live cams, and specifically the Champaigne Powder Snow Cam, so successful.
“Our live cams are extremely important to us because we live in such a scenic area of Colorado and because weather is so important to our business. Steamboat residents and guests love to check in on current conditions, watch skiers and bikers on the mountain and even see wildlife occasionally wander by the cameras.
Our Champagne Powder Cam is by far our most popular live camera. During the winter, skiers and riders check the camera frequently to make plans for the next powder day. HD Relay also allows us to create time lapses of the snow piling up, and these are always extremely popular on social media.”

As you can see, Steamboat is killing it online with their HD Relay live cams. The screenshot above was taken from a time lapse video created with the HD Relay back end editor. Steamboat shared it on Facebook, where the video received over 38k views and 1.4k likes.
Other fabulous destinations across the globe are having similar success. Golf resorts, ski resorts, beaches, sporting events, theme parks, wildlife areas, zoos, bird nesting cams, and more are using HD Relay live camera hosting to attract tourists from all around the world.
