The city’s role in helping  BAP, Big Agnes and Honey Stinger find a new headquarters building

Our View

The city of Steamboat Springs should actively seek to retain its homegrown outdoor industry manufacturer. However, we have no quarrel with City Council selling the Iron Horse Hotel to the highest bidder while keeping the property in workforce housing for the time being

Keeping our homegrown outdoor industry business in Steamboat is a high priority, but we believe the city's role is limited.

Although only one of eight recent bids for the Iron Horse Hotel has been made public, Steamboat Today confirmed last week that city council narrowed the list of bidders down to two, and one of those top bidders was BAP, Big Agnes and Honey Stinger.
