Big Sky Resort Announces 75 Additional Workforce Housing Beds in Big Sky
• 75 additional beds will be located in Mountain Village
• New beds will be completed for the 2019-2020 ski season
• Big Sky Resort provides more than 500 seasonal workforce housing beds in Big Sky
Big Sky, Mont. (March 26, 2019) - For the third consecutive year, Big Sky Resort is constructing additional seasonal workforce housing, right in the Big Sky community. The resort plans to add 75 new beds, located in Mountain Village with pedestrian access to Big Sky Resort. Construction will commence in spring 2019, with units opening for the winter 2019-2020 ski season. With this expansion, Big Sky Resort will have produced over 500 affordable accommodations within the Big Sky community.
This new housing, like recent additions, offers occupant-friendly designs and modern features. It is located within the Mountain Lodge campus that provides workers pedestrian access to the Resort for convenience, quality of life, and will not burden transportation infrastructure.
For more than 25 years, Big Sky Resort has been committed to accommodating seasonal workers by constructing, acquiring, and expanding housing campuses in the Big Sky community without relying on public funds.
"This is not a one-shot deal," says Taylor Middleton, Big Sky Resort president and general manager, "it's just another step in the long-term commitment that Boyne Resorts and Big Sky has made toward creating affordable and convenient housing options."
There isn't a single answer to the community housing challenges that almost every resort town faces.
"Dorm-style housing like we build gives seasonal workers an affordable and safe place to land," says Brian Wheeler, Big Sky Resort vice president of real estate development, and member of the Big Sky Community Housing Trust. "Providing these temporary housing options better suits the needs of seasonal workers and frees up more beds in the community for others," Wheeler says.
