When members of the Bozeman community put their minds to something, good things happen. Crosscut Mountain Sports Center is one of those things. A few years ago, this community non-profit raised $8 million to secure the properties of Bohart Ranch Cross Country Ski Center and the defunct Crosscut Ranch, both Nordic ski venues.

Posted by Kali Gillette on Apr 17, 2019 8:00:00 AM

It’s been quite a winter in Bozeman! We’ve enjoyed heavy snowfall, which meant awesome alpine and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
