Hotel Resort Worker Big Sky, MT


Company Biography
Big Sky Resort is Montana's most complete destination resort that combines extensive lodging and conference facilities with outdoor recreation. Originally developed in the early 1970s by NBC newscaster, Chet Huntley, Big Sky first opened its ski lifts in 1973. Big Sky lies high in the mountain meadows surrounded by timberland, the Spanish Peaks Primitive Area and the Gallatin National Forest. Lone Mountain towers 11,166 feet over the resort area. Visitors to this area will experience outstanding recreation, lodging, skiing and western hospitality. Fragrant pines, trout streams, and rugged canyons provide a home to deer, elk, moose, and big horn sheep. Being able to work and live in the mountains is a special treat. Many of the attributes that bring our guests here also bring our employees here. The mountains, an active lifestyle, the Yellowstone Ecosystem, and meeting interesting people have led us here for a season or perhaps a lifetime. We are fortunate to work and live in the shadow of Lone Mountain and share these experiences together. Here at Big Sky Resort we focus on exceptional guest service, teamwork, and creating memorable experiences for employees and guests alike. We look forward to seeing you in Big Sky!
