On this chilly, blustery Wednesday I sure was glad that I brought my winter coat out of the closet. Not only was it extremely cold outside, but the wind gusts topped almost 100 mph at the Steamboat Ski Area. Yikes! Despite the chill in the air, I was able to tag-a-long with the Steamboat Chamber Ambassadors as they did their monthly “Meet & Greets” with local businesses. It was a great way to spend the afternoon; thanking businesses for their support, giving hand outs of yummy chocolate, a Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association “Buy Local” water bottle and a personalized card from the Chamber Ambassadors.

We stopped at 16 businesses to say thank you and tell them they are not only appreciated, they are truly valued members of the Chamber family.

The six of us who took part in the “Meet & Greet” joked that the experience was like “reverse” trick-or-treating or caroling a few months early. None the less it was a wonderful afternoon. Thank you Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association members!
