Resort-based mountain towns face a set of challenges unique to their remote locations and economic circumstances. Within current frameworks, mountain regions are often unable to generate sufficient opportunities for full-time residents to live, work and prosper. Skilled working residents are becoming scarce as families face extreme living costs with little opportunity to find solutions. This accelerating trend is due to a number of factors, each of which contribute to an eroding community and economic landscape.
To address these issues we formed APX1, an organization built to provide livability resources for U.S. mountain communities. Through research and analysis, we innovate best-practice policy, land use, housing and food security solutions. These solutions inform the APX1 impact investor network, which provides capital for APX1 identified investment opportunities. APX1 Partners is a full service development firm established to build solutions that bolster rural recreation communities. APX1 is quickly becoming the leading resource for mountain policy, development, and investment information. From Crested Butte, Colorado to Sun Valley, Idaho we are dedicated to finding solutions for the longevity of rural mountain communities.
