Yampa Valley Bank is a locally owned bank in the heart of the Yampa Valley in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. This unique bank is owned by 72 shareholders, all local to Routt and Moffat Counties. The active role they play in the community does not go unnoticed; their staff is involved in over 40 community groups and nonprofits in the region. Yampa Valley Bank also hosts the biggest winter carnival in the Northwest, and people needed to know that. We began our work highlighting this amazing, and somewhat terrifying event, and then evolved into telling other stories of how Yampa Valley Bank has benefited the local community; be it their first home, their first car, a loan after disaster, we have been there to tell their story. Yampa Valley Bank powers community, we make sure their community knows how, featuring familiar faces and events.
