Mountain Village Profile


Overview

Mountain Village is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 1,426 people and just one neighborhood, Mountain Village is the 143rd largest community in Colorado.

Mountain Village home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Mountain Village real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Mountain Village isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Mountain Village are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Mountain Village is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Mountain Village who work in food service (17.32%), maintenance occupations (12.01%), and management occupations (10.69%).

Of important note, Mountain Village is also a town of artists. Mountain Village has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Mountain Village’s character.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.31% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Mountain Village is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Mountain Village’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

One of the benefits of Mountain Village is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.39 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Even though Mountain Village is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the bus for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
