Our Greatest Strength: Our Staff.
Mountain Sky guests regularly rebook at a 90+% rate each season, and staff interaction with our guests is the single most important ingredient to our success. We’re looking for people who understand the importance of a friendly smile and a kind word. Our guests aren’t here to be served by a staff that is ‘seen but not heard’… they want to hear your story, share a laugh, and experience true western hospitality at its finest. Our staff members are personable, adventurous, hard-working, honest, and are willing to pitch in when they see that a helping hand is needed. We’re looking for people with a desire and a willingness to learn.
You’ll also join a community focused on our Core Values, intent on impacting not just our guests, but the community in which we live.
We’re looking forward to building an exciting and dynamic team for our 2021 season! We are looking for staff who can work a minimum of June 6 – August 29, with employment available as early as April 19 and as late at October 31. See below for current openings!
Assistant Wellness Director – As Assistant Wellness Director, you will help coordinate our wellness programs, and work closely with the Wellness Director to ensure smooth operation of the facilities. You will contribute to wellness education and program development and implementation, as well as ensure that the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch facility is maintained on a consistent basis and that all guests are satisfied with their experience at the Wellness Center at Mountain Sky and the Yoga Studio at West Creek Ranch.
Wrangler – The ideal wrangler candidate will demonstrate both excellent customer service and strong horsemanship skills. Wranglers will lead rides on 17,000 private acres, in addition to the neighboring Gallatin National Forest. Trail rides aren’t your typical nose-to-tail walking dude rides; our guests stay for a week at a time, and they come to ride! We lead walk, trot, and lope rides, all with a heavy instruction component. A riding video will be required from applicants not able to join us for a live riding interview, but it is not necessary to submit the video with your initial application. Please note that personal horses may be approved but outside dogs are not allowed. 3 – 8 month positions available. Dates are mid-May to August 28 at minimum, with a start date as early as March 1 and an end date as late as October 31.

In the guest dining room, we serve buffet-style breakfast and lunch, then offer a multi-course, casual fine dining experience for dinner. Key duties include staff training, management of Guest Services staff on shift, communicating guest needs to the kitchen staff, organizing and maintaining the guest and staff dining rooms. While related experience is preferred, this is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for customer service to develop management skills! Position runs April 16 – October 31.

Must be available mid-May through August.
Guest Services (“All-Around”) – The largest workforce on the ranch, this crew rotates through our dining room, housekeeping department and kids program (during the summer months) on a shift-to-shift basis, usually with one dishwashing shift per week. Depending upon interest and skill set, an additional shift or two per week might be spent leading hikes, transporting guests in passenger vans, working in the gift shop, helping with landscaping, and more. 3 – 6 month positions available.
