Departments at Bridger Bowl conduct hiring on a varied schedule, typically starting the end of September through the beginning of November. The openings in each department vary from season to season. Bridger Bowl is fortunate to have many returning employees (65% - 70% of the workforce) and may not always have openings in all departments.

A personal face-to-face interview is typically required of all employment candidates. Bridger Bowl is primarily a winter operation so many department managers begin work for the winter season in mid- September. Employment inquiries received prior to October, will not receive responses until the department manager returns to work for the winter season.

International Applications

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

Operating Season

Bridger Bowl is primarily a winter operation and is snow dependent. Montana usually enjoys excellent snow conditions but sometimes it arrives late. Low or delayed snowfall may result in 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 coverage 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 early September; 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 rentals in Bozeman range, on average, from $900 to $1200+ per room. Lower priced units can be easier to find in Belgrade and Livingston.
