Here are some things you should expect if you plan to move to Bozeman.

  • We're far from any major population centers.
  • The closest big city environments would be Salt Lake City, Utah (6 hrs by car); Boise, ID (8 hrs); Denver, Colorado (9.5 hrs); and Seattle, Washington (10 hrs). We do have an airport with decent connections if you're willing to spend the money.
  • Most people leave after their first winter. The snow can fall anytime throughout the year. It's not that cold for the most part, but you need to be prepared for -5-degree weather with spells as cold as -20. Sometimes it gets even colder than that. It's not a good place for people who don't like winter.

  • It's best to have some outdoor winter hobbies so you don't find yourself stuck inside for half the year.
  • For the most part, people are very fit and adventurous here. World-class skiing, rock climbing, mountaineering, and mountain biking. 6 different mountain ranges within a 2-hour drive.
  • When people say there’s a music scene, they mean the same (good) 15 local bands rotate venues and occasionally some larger national acts come through Bozeman.
  • Finding a good-paying job can be difficult in Bozeman
    • People in Montana love the great outdoors
