Yampa Valley Airport Commission


The Mission of the Yampa Valley Airport Commission (YVAC) is to maximize revenue and customer service at the Yampa Valley Regional Airport and the Steamboat Springs Airport while ensuring safety and value to the community.

The long-range goals of the YVAC are:

  • To direct activities at both airports in a manner that complements rather than competes with each other. 
  • To oversee the management of the Yampa Valley Regional Airport and the Steamboat Springs Airport under delegated authority from Routt County and the City of Steamboat Springs (OWNERS), respectively. 
  • To review, approve and recommend actions to the OWNERS regarding strategies, policies, legal commitments and budgets. 
  • To work closely with other community partners such as the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association, the lodging community, the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation and the Northwest Colorado Aviators.
