'Postcards From Paradise' Explores Ski Town Homelessness

New, 1 comment

Here at Curbed Ski, we've documented the challenges of finding affordable housing in ski towns, whether it's because of sky-high rents or a lack of available lodging. Nowhere is the problem more acute than in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. With more people living in and visiting Jackson Hole than ever before, the town's housing supply has failed to keep pace. In this 15 minute clip from a proposed feature documentary called Postcards from Paradise by Peak Films, filmmaker Raul Gutierrez shows how the problem in Jackson isn't finding a job (there are help wanted ads galore), it's finding a place to live.
