Big Sky Resort

Home to the Biggest Skiing in America, Best Mountain Meetings, and Basecamp to Yellowstone

Big Sky Resort offers the opportunity to work in hospitality and play in the great outdoors. Situated in the Galllatin Mountain Range and the Spanish Peaks within the Rockies, the hikes and views are breathtaking. The Gallatin River runs through it (just ask Brad Pitt) and a day trip to Yellowstone National Park is easily arranged. 

Big Sky is a small town located in Southwest Montana with a permanent population of about 2,500 people. Big Sky is about half way between West Yellowstone and Bozeman. Bozeman, the closest major town, which has major shopping centers, great downtown area and a Costco (very important!) is approximately 50 miles from Big Sky Resort.
