Industry Work Groups 

The Steamboat Springs Chamber staff and Board of Directors, the Routt County Commissioners, and Steamboat Springs City Council have been working together to assess the impacts of COVID-19 on our community and get businesses up and running as quickly as possible.

The Chamber initiated economic recovery industry work groups to identify specific support and change that needs to happen in order to open businesses and assist in long-term recovery. Fourteen different industry sectors have been identified. Find contact information for each group below.
