Our Tracks Left Behind
Sometimes a groundbreaker, other times a trendsetter, Alpine Bank is proud of the recognition it has received through numerous awards over the years for creating new pathways to community success. Although some of the awards are financial in nature, the ones that give us the most pride are humanitarian and come from outside the banking industry.
Alpine Bank was founded in Carbondale by Bob Young. Originally known as Roaring Fork Bank, the grand opening included presentation of a sizable donation to the town's park department. Thus began the spirit of community that continues to be such a part of Alpine Bank’s culture.
