Our Greatest Strength: Our Staff.
Mountain Sky boasted a 93% guest rebooking rate for the summer of 2018, 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 finding the final members of our 2020 team! Due to the situation surrounding COVID-19, the ranch will be open for operation August 2nd – October 31st. We are looking for staff who can work the entirety of this guest season. See below for current openings!
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 – 7 month positions available. Dates are mid-May to August 22 at minimum, with a start date as early as April 1 and an end date as late as October 31.
Dining Room Assistant Manager – Assists the dining room manager in all aspects of running our guest and staff dining rooms, as well as our outdoor “meal ride” experiences. 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.
Hay & Cattle: Noxious Weed Sprayer Assistant – This position will assist the noxious weed sprayer in implementing a weed management program across property. Main duties will include herbicide application and other methods of vegetation management, documentation of spray tracks and chemical use, maintenance of equipment and assisting in other ranch duties as assigned. Must be available mid-May through August.
