What jobs would best help residents stay in a a small ski town with out having it bought out from under them?

I live in a small ski town. Like many others it's growing fast. The problem is that rich outsiders are rushing to town buying land, out of place mansions and second houses. Its all cheaper than where they came from but still expensive for locals. The price of land and housing is rising fast. The town has too few jobs that would allow a local to make enough money to afford a house. Many people here are either in construction jobs making other peoples houses or low paying service jobs. Its as if we're having the town bought out from under us. What types of high paying jobs would be good to try to attract to our town? People always say high tech but I just worked for a successful online retail store (website) where super geeky smart people only made $10 an hour.
