Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport

BOZEMAN, MT (January 10, 2018).  Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) handled 1,199,537 passengers during 2017.  This is up 8.3% compared to 2016 and is the eighth consecutive year of record breaking passenger traffic at BZN.  Annual passenger traffic at BZN has increased by more than 500,000 passengers since 2010 and BZN now accounts for 30% of all airline passengers traveling to and from Montana.  


Skiing and Bozeman are like peanut butter and jelly. In the early 70’s, serious skiers discovered Bridger Bowl’s steep chutes, light and dry powder, sunny days and laid back attitude. True mountaineers were drawn to the area, carving fresh tracks in unexplored territory. With this wave of skiers, came the need for ski shops. Not just ordinary ski shops, but serious ski shops. Which is exactly what happened. Today, a handful of these local ski shops are still thriving, and are known for their deep expertise and extensive product knowledge; and they are still full of passion for the outdoors.

The reasons I moved to Bozeman after college were simple: big mountains, deep snow, blue skies and cute boys. 

What I found were big mountains, deep snow, blue skies and some bad ass women skiers who are still some of my closest friends.

I had saved enough money to work part-time and ski part-time. Bridger Bowl had an allure; it was known for its hard-core skiers and steep terrain. I wasn’t a daring skier, but I certainly wanted to be.
