Securing Sustainability

Sustainability in Wild Montana

The Ranch at Rock Creek is embarking on its sixth year in operation as a guest ranch. As we head into the summer season, we’re examining our commitment to sustainability and how we are responding to the evolution of the travel industry. While we seek high standards, we must also ensure we are growing in a healthy way, in order to provide an unmatchable travel experience for our guests and steady, supportive jobs for our dedicated employees. Just like the frontiersmen who settled in Granite County over the last 150 years, we need to be able to sustain our business in an untamed land—the still wild peaks and valleys of the Northern Rocky Mountains.

Our mission as a travel destination is to stay as close to our authentic Montana Ranch roots as possible while providing an unmatchable luxury experience. For this reason, we’re committed to making improvements each year that allow us to create a lasting home in Granite County, reduce our footprint and support our efforts to be better stewards of the land.

Ranchers Behind the Lens

Winter Staff Photography

Our staff are some of winter’s most ardent fans. With few exceptions, they are dedicated hikers, skiers and outdoor adventure travelers, who’ve traded the hustle of larger towns and properties for the natural splendor of rural Montana. Before the first snow falls, most of the staff have purchased their season pass to Discovery Ski Area and have their skis and snowboards waxed and ready. Philipsburg is far from a bustling city, but it is continuously named one of the best secret ski towns and a “hidden gem,” alluding to the fact that sapphire mining is a popular pastime.

Our Human Resources department has this unique breed (hospitality professional meets nature lover) in mind as they hire seasonal and year-round staff for 2016. As the world’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star ranch, employees at The Ranch at Rock Creek gain experience they can’t find anywhere else—meeting the high standards of the Forbes Travel Guide and Relais & Châteaux property, while mastering hobbies like horseback riding and fly fishing. If you know of someone looking for a rewarding opportunity and a top-notch resume builder, please forward our Career page and encourage them to apply quickly.
