With Thanksgiving and the ski resort opening in only a few days, it is more important than ever for everyone to act as an Ambassador for our community by following and sharing the 5 Commitments of Containment and limiting indoor socializing to only members of your immediate household.

Our Village – Stronger Together. It is critical that we all do our part to keep our community safe, our economy open, and the ski resort open for everyone to enjoy. Read a unified letter from our San Miguel regional partners.

Local Business Grants
The State of Colorado recently approved $3 million in Coronavirus Relief Funding for San Miguel County to establish a one-time grant program to help qualified county-based businesses severely disrupted by the pandemic.

Due to the limited funds, the program’s goal is to assist businesses who had few or no opportunities to adapt under the state and local public health orders. The deadline for businesses to apply is Monday, Nov 30 at 5 p.m.
