Amidst the 10 other girls on the team, she met those who would become her best friends. And on Bozeman’s groomed, snow-covered trails, she unknowingly found the start of her career.

When members of the Bozeman community put their minds to something, good things happen. Crosscut Mountain Sports Center is one of those things.

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