Welcome to Bozeman & Gallatin Valley


The brick buildings downtown, overflowing with brewpubs and boutiques, still retain their dusty historic appeal and you can still spend days in the surrounding Bridger and Gallatin mountains without seeing another human.

And, while Big Sky up the forested Gallatin Valley is besieged with condos and town-homes, Bridger Bowl is so underdeveloped you might question whether the place is still open. In short, get here quick so you can tell your kids about the time you were in Bozemen while it was still one of the coolest unknown towns in the Rockies.

Antelope Butte Hike

The hike up Antelope Butte lasts approximately two hours. Our tour guides are members of Erik's Ranch, and are young adults on the autism spectrum. Your guides have a passion for the outdoors, animals, and wildlife, and will entertain you with facts about the Ranch and the surrounding area. We ask that you meet at the Lodge 15 minutes prior to the start of the hike so that you can be given safety instructions. You will be walking through brush, and as you ascend the Butte, the incline can be challenging. Please wear long pants, and bring a water bottle, as well as your sense of adventure!
