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


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 inquiries received prior to October, will 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, PDF or text file.

Please note: If you upload your resume, you still need to complete the application in its entirety. Do not indicate "see resume" in any of the application fields. 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.

Operating Season

Scheduled dates of operation for the 2021-2022 ski season are Dec 10, 2021 thru Apr 10, 2022. If conditions permit, the area may open for weekends-only, beginning Thanksgiving 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 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

for two-bedroom units. Lower priced units can be easier to find in Belgrade and Livingston.


An employee shuttle bus will be available seven days a week throughout the ski season. The bus will pick up at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds at 7:25am and return to the fairgrounds around 5:25pm daily.
