Affordable housing is one of the biggest issues facing this community. How has it impacted you?

“I think it’s only going to get worse…The only affordable housing is provided by employers, really. Places like the Wrap Shack [provide] condos just to have employees.”

“I work two jobs and I don’t feel like I can catch up or get ahead…[Big Sky] is growing, but there’s nothing here to support it as far as a working structure. At some point you’re going to run out of people to run the place.”

“We lost more than six employees over the whole housing issue since last summer…[and] we had to close on Sundays during last shoulder season. At some point, it puts pressure on us to reduce our services because we just don’t have people.”
