In a growing effort to encourage diversity in our economic development in Steamboat, there is focus on outdoor retailers and manufacturing businesses. With the likes of Smartwool, Big Agnes, Honey Stinger, Eriksen Cycles, Moots, Point 6 and others, we want your business to choose Steamboat. Why? Because we are Ski Town USA, Bike Town USA, we have the Yampa River and have a community rich with western heritage, tourism and the great outdoors minutes away from anywhere!
In a recent article in the Steamboat Pilot & Today, “Yampa Valley Data Partners estimated last year that employees of Northwest Colorado’s outdoor retailers were taking home an average salary of $55,000, about $13,000 more than the median income of $42,000 in Routt County. The industry already employs more than 200 people locally.”
