Meet the muscle behind top mountain homes—105 homebuilders who have reached the peak of success by building bespoke abodes in mountain communities.

These intrepid souls work in conditions not often experienced by their city-dwelling counterparts: raging winds, white-out blizzards, subzero temperatures and even a bear or two walking through the construction site.

For our inaugural list, we gathered recommendations from homeowners, architects, and designers—you’ll find the results below. Firms are organized by state and town, with a special designation given to companies that have appeared in the pages of Mountain Living during the past two years.
