Sales & Reservation Agent - Big Sky

We are looking for a Sales and Reservation Agent to join our team!

Lone Mountain Ranch is a destination where guests disconnect from the world, while connecting with others through unforgettable adventures in a natural setting. Moments are crafted through discovery, exceptional people, fun activities and a breathtaking environment.

Situated on 148 acres in beautiful Big Sky, Montana, LMR was first homesteaded in 1915 and has long been recognized as one of the premiere guest ranch resorts in the country. The property consists of 30 rooms located within 24 unique cabins as well a restaurant and saloon, pavilion, retail shop, equestrian facilities, and meeting spaces. Listed on the National Registry of the Historic Places, a member of the Dude Rancher’s Association, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, and voted the #1 Nordic Ski area in North America, LMR offers authentic accommodations, genuine Montana cuisine, exceptional service, and a stunning array of outdoor activities. Combine these attributes with close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky Resort, as well as Bozeman Airport, and we believe the LMR guest experience is unlike any other in the American West.
