The summit goal is to provide stakeholders with actionable information, support networks and access to financing to help facilitate best-practice community building solutions. The program includes three days of solutions-based presentations, dialogue and powder skiing.

Speaker lineups include renowned impact investors, real estate analysts, workforce housing developers and key stakeholders from 26 mountain regions to facilitate solutions-based discussions to address the affordability gap, workforce housing, developer incentives and best practice land use strategies.
