Mountainworks provides specialized and comprehensive expertise in the assessment, planning, design, and strategy for mountain resort, recreation, and real estate based projects throughout the world.


Our storied legacy is rooted in over twenty years of internal planning and operations for the internationally recognized Vail Resorts group. We have since completed thousands of independent projects on nearly every continent of the world and established a firm position at the forefront of mountain planning industry.  This broad experience has provided our team with an understanding of the characteristics of a successful resort and recreation development and preferences of international, national and regional marketplaces. 



From peak to valley, we specialize in aiding mountain resorts, ski areas, recreation activities, base villages, and communities with master planning, mountain planning, site design, landscape architecture, and strategy services. We can design a new international destination resort from scratch for one client while analyzing whether replacing an old fixed grip chairlift or installing bike trails makes sense for another.  Each project we undertake, regardless of scope or size, receives practical, integrated solutions that are cost-effective, user-friendly, constructible, and operable. 


From the Himalaya to Patagonia, we've worked in the mountains of 6 continents in over 40 countries, completing thousands of alpine destination, community, and recreation projects along the way.  We are privileged to include among our clients some of the most progressive public and private entities.  These clients include mountain resorts, ski areas, communities, private land-owners, developers, governmental organizations, and visionaries. Together, we innovate dynamic solutions to complex challenges and prioritize achievable steps that lead to measurable results.
