Earn Big Money in Big Sky

What's the deal with working in Big Sky?

As the crow flies, it is only 32 miles from Bozeman to Big Sky, but that doesn't mean that getting there is as easy as hopping in your car and heading off only to arrive 30 minutes later. No, the scenic drive down US-191 S is a beautiful winding route through the mountains that will take you about an hour in the best of conditions. But don't let that deter you from considering shifts in Big Sky. There is one BIG reason to consider these jobs...hear us out! 

Our gigs in Big Sky typically pay 15-20% more than a gig in the valley, mostly to make up for the distance required to get there from Bozeman. We want you to be able to take full advantage of these increased rates, and it isn't as hard to do as you might think. Here are some ideas we know you'll love:

Go Camping!

Make some money and soak up the beautiful outdoors at the same time! If you find a job that interests you in Big Sky, make it a trip! Sign up for multiple days at the same gig and find yourself a place to camp out. We have tons of suggestions (just ask us), but here are a few that come to mind:

Taylor Fork - Pick up shifts at the 320 Ranch and camp beneath the shadow of the Taylor-Hilgard Peaks and fish the crystal-clear water! Crank out lots of hours, make money and enjoy the great outdoors. Don't feel like "roughing it?" Grab a bunk at the ranch!

Red Cliff Campground - This popular area offers tent camping in the campground. Do some climbing after work and set up a dispersed campsite up the trail leading away from the campground! We know you will be impressed.

Take the Bus!

Skyline offers free transportation to and from Big Sky. Grab a beverage, plug in your headphones and enjoy the scenic Gallatin Canyon. This is a perfect option for students who are looking to spend their commute studying! Check out the bus schedule and start planning your shifts: https://skylinebus.com/routes-schedules/summer-schedule/

Bring a Buddy!

Work with a friend and make the drive together. Carpooling will save you money on gas and make the drive go by so much faster. Not to mention, you will have a built in accountability partner and someone to eat lunch with or to grab dinner with after your shift. Everything is better with a friend (or better yet, two)!

Find an Event!

Take advantage of what Big Sky has to offer: Music in the Mountains, Farmers Market, PBR...Pair this idea with any of the above. While you are in Big Sky, you should most definitely check out the area. Make it a trip and earn some money around your good time!

Don’t miss out on those high wages and the opportunity to learn more about this spectacular corner of our backyard.
