Occupations and Workforce
Olympic Valley is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.61% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Olympic Valley is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Olympic Valley who work in office and administrative support (21.89%), food service (18.22%) and sales jobs (12.19%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 24.00% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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 Olympic Valley is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
