The Details

Thanks for your interest in employment at Bridger Bowl. If you are an enthusiastic, dedicated and motivated person who enjoys providing excellent guest service, we encourage you to apply for a position.

Please read the following information, it should help answer most questions about applying for employment at Bridger Bowl.

Applying for Employment

Departments at Bridger Bowl conduct hiring on a varied schedule, typically in October and November. The openings in each department vary from season to season. Bridger Bowl is fortunate to have a large number of returning employees (65% - 70% of the workforce), therefore we may not always have openings in the listed areas. A personal face-to-face interview is normally required of all employment candidates. Since we are primarily a winter operation, many department managers begin work for the winter season in October. Employment inquires received during the summer may not receive responses until the department manager returns to work for the winter season.

Resumes may be attached to the online application, but must be a Microsoft Word Document, PDF or Text file. Resumes may also be sent to the department with whom you are seeking employment using the following address.

We do not process resumes sent in for general distribution.

International Applicants

Bridger Bowl does not sponsor international workers under H2B or J-1 Visa.

Bridger Bowl’s Operating Season

Scheduled dates of operation for the 2014-2015 Ski Season are: December 5th, 2014 through April 5th, 2015. If conditions permit, the area may open weekends only beginning Thanksgiving weekend and/or extend beyond the April closing date.

Bridger Bowl is primarily a winter operation and is snow dependent. Montana usually enjoys excellent snow conditions, but sometimes it comes late. If we experience low or delayed snowfall, we may not be able to open all or part of the ski area as scheduled. In that event, work may not be available until there is adequate snow to operate.

Summer employment at Bridger Bowl is limited to a small workforce in Mountain Operations and Food Service. Many of the positions in Mountain Operations are held by long term employees and openings are rare. Food Service summer operations are from late June through August. These positions are typically filled by employees from the previous winter.

Employee Housing

There is no employee housing available at the mountain. Most employees live in the nearby towns of Bozeman (16 miles) , Belgrade (26 miles) and Livingston (28 miles). Apartment rents average from $400 - $650 for two bedroom units. Lower priced units are difficult to find. For more information on rentals check the Bozeman Daily Chronicle classifieds at www.bozemanchronicle.com.

Transportation

An employee shuttle bus will be available, seven days a week. The bus will pick up at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds at 7:25 a.m. and return to the fairgrounds at 5:15 p.m. daily. There is no public transportation available to the ski area.

Employee Benefits

Skiing Privileges: Full time employees (32 hours per week, full season) may receive a complimentary season pass. Dependents of full time employees may also receive season passes at no cost. Full time employees with no dependents may receive up to 5 free day tickets to be given to friends/family.

Job Listings

The following information is a brief description of work schedules, wages and the time frame when departments accept resumes or applications and conduct hiring. Since we are primarily a winter operation, many department managers begin work for the winter ski season in October. Employment inquires received during the summer may not receive responses until the department manager returns to work for the winter ski season. Full time seasonal positions usually begin in December. Holidays and weekends are when we are the busiest and you can expect to be working during these times.
