Come home to Bozeman Montana

by Liz Nitz

Are you one of many people who are considering a move out of a large city?

Come home to Bozeman, a city community of 50,000 located off I-90 in the southwestern region of Montana.  Bozeman can be found in the Gallatin Valley, 4820 feet above sea level and surrounded by Mountain ranges.

 

Our Mountain Ranges include:

Bridger Range

The Bridger Mountains are located to the northeast of Bozeman. The highest peak in the Bridger Range is Sacagawea Peak at 9,665 ft (2,496 m).

 

Gallatin Range

The Gallatin Range is located south of Bozeman and includes more than 10 mountains over 10,000 feet (3,000 m). The highest peak in the range is Electric Peak at 10,969 feet (3,343 m).

 

Madison Range

The Madison Range is located southwest of Bozeman. The highest peak in the Madison Range is also the highest peak in Montana outside the Beartooth Range. Hilgard Peak measures at 11,316 feet.

 

Crazy Mountains

The Crazy Mountains, often called the Crazies, are located between the Musselshell and Yellowstone rivers. The highest peak is Crazy Peak at 11,214 feet (3,418 m).

 

Absarokas

The Absarokas are located southeast of Bozeman. The range stretches about 150 mi (240 km) across the Montana-Wyoming border. Eight peaks in the Absaroka Mountains exceed 12,000 feet, including the highest point, Francs Peak (13,140 feet) located in Wyoming.

 

Tobacco Roots

The Tobacco Root Mountains lie in the northern Rocky Mountains, between the Jefferson and Madison Rivers in southwest Montana. The highest peak is Hollowtop at 10,604 .

 

With all of these mountain ranges, you can imagine the dramatic beauty that Bozemanites view everyday.

 

What is there to do for fun?

The year-round recreational opportunities are boundless in Bozeman.  With much of the surrounding land in the mountains belonging to the Forest Service , Bureau of Land Management and the state of Montana, these mountains and wilderness areas will stay pristine and able to be enjoyed by generations to come.  And of course, Montana’s rivers are legendary amongst anglers. Popular activities here are hiking, camping, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, rafting, hunting, alpine and Nordic skiing, snow shoeing, and ice climbing.

Bozeman is located only 90 minutes to Yellowstone National Park and  45 minutes to the renowned Big Sky ski area.  We also have our Locals ski area, Bridger Bowl, where skiing can be as challenging or as relaxed as you like and at less than half the cost of Big Sky.

 

What about work?

But Bozeman is not fun and games all the time! Bozeman has been name #1 Micropolitan City in the US for economic strength, three years in a row!  Montana is still mostly agricultural but there is a burgeoning tech and biotech scene in Bozeman which is strengthened by the entrepreneurial talent and experience that consistently moves here each year.  The business community here is vibrant, smart and symbiotic.  More about Bozeman economic strength at this link. https://policom.com/rankings-micropolitan-areas/

One of Bozeman’s economic strengths is its housing market.  Due to the consistent level of demand , Values of home consistently grow at 8-10 %per year.  Bozeman and the area offer homes from entry level condos to historic downtown homes to multi million mountain ranches and everything in between.

 

Montana State and the cultural aspects of Bozeman

Bozeman is home to the state’s largest university, Montana State which is also the region’s largest single employer.  Montana State is woven into the fabric of Bozeman which helps the city’s cultural diversity and activity.  There are many ways to experience the arts and culture of the west here including Art walks, music festivals, farmers markets, rodeos, and  parades . Attending one of those events will help you feel part of a community even smaller than our actual 50,000 people.

 

Does this community sound like a pretty ideal place to live? What are you waiting for?
