Big Sky, big mountain, and a big commitment to employee housing.
Make no mistake, Big Sky is a big mountain, with a range of terrain that will delight everyone from never-evers to extreme skiers.
5850 acres, 38 lifts, and 4350 vertical feet. Yes it’s huge, and Big Sky averages 400 inches or world class champagne powder AKA blower pow AKA cold smoke.
Here’s the resort promo video.
Big Sky is also making a big commitment to employee housing, recently opening the Levinsky Lodge A which houses 35 team members in apartment style housing that sets the standard for sustainability.
Lodge B and C are already in the pipeline.
By the start of the 2023/24 winter, Big Sky plan to have 1000 employees in employee housing. That’s a very impressive 50% of the workforce.
There’s no shortage of 2/3 person dorm style housing next to free bus routes so you don’t need a car to work at Big Sky.
Bozeman, one hour North of Big Sky is the Gateway to Big Sky and a cool place for a big night out with the Montana State University kids. It’s just one of many great road trips to make out of Big Sky. Yellowstone National Park (the world’s first national park) being another obvious one. Another great thing about worker ski seasons in Montana is the generous reciprocal pass deals for employees. Road trips to ski at different mountains is very possible.
Big Sky is owned by Boyne Resorts so there’s options for employment in different regions of North America if you want to travel. There are opportunities for international workers under the J1 student visa and the H2B skilled worker visa.
I will finish this profile with this epic image by Jackson Bland. It sums up Big Sky perfectly.
