Summit County boasts some of the best year-round recreation in Colorado and with it, a thriving business community. Within close proximity of five major ski resorts, and home to six unique towns, the Summit Chamber is committed to balancing the needs and unique circumstances that each of our mountain communities face.
Under the Summit Chamber umbrella, we have created chapters within each of our communities. These chapters are committed to identifying and addressing the needs of their particular communities, while simultaneously working together to unite our organization and county. This structure enables each Chapter to support events and activities that are right for their unique community. It also gives a stronger, more focused voice within each governmental entity.
The Chamber currently supports the Breckenridge, Exit 205 (Dillon and Silverthorne), Frisco, Copper Mountain Resort, Keystone Neighbourhood Company and Summit Independent Business Alliance Chapters.
A portion of your dues will be allocated to the Chapter where your business is located. If you prefer to designate a different affiliation, please contact Cheri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
