Building Bozeman’s Outdoor Legacy

Crosscut Mountain Sports Center envisions a year-round recreation, sports training and educational facility that provides access to the mountains for human-powered outdoor activities.

Community and Conservation

Crosscut Mountain Sports Center is a nonprofit organization committed to conserving the 500+ acres adjacent to Bridger Bowl Ski Area to provide year-round recreational access and athletic opportunities, with a special focus on empowering youth in skiing and biathlon.


16 miles north of Bozeman, Montana, at the base of the Bridger Mountains, the 259-acre Crosscut Ranch and 276-acre Bohart Ranch properties – situated alongside the Bridger Bowl Ski Area – first started operating as Nordic ski venues in the 1980s and have helped define our community as a mountain ski town. Now both ranches are being offered for sale, providing a unique opportunity to reconnect this landscape and forever preserve a cherished recreational resource.


Crosscut Mountain Sports Center's trail system, lodge, and venue will be designed sustainably to accommodate a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts – from hikers and mountain bikers to skiing families seeking groomed cross country ski trails and backcountry access. CMSC will also be home base for the Bridger Biathlon Club.


Crosscut Mountain Sports Center will be a year-round recreational and educational resource for the Bozeman community.

Our vision is to work with the community to build a recreational asset that will provide easy access to the mountains for our children to get outside and play. Crosscut Mountain Sports Center will reunite the historic Crosscut Ranch and Bohart Ranch properties on behalf of all who seek to enjoy the unique mountain sport experiences that the Bridger Mountains have to offer.


Crosscut Mountain Sports Center’s board, staff and coaches are committed to providing families with top-notch outdoor education and environmental programs that connect kids with nature, and where our children can learn and develop outdoor skills to last a lifetime.

Bridger Biathlon Club

Crosscut Mountain Sports Center will be the base for the Bridger Biathlon Club, Bozeman’s nonprofit biathlon organization with a mission of promoting athletic achievement and the values of healthy living. Sportsmanship, safety, discipline and fun are all hallmarks of BBC's programs, and we work hard to keep biathlon affordable with the generous support of our donors.


We are in the early stages of this AMBITIOUS project.
