Carly Madison | Property Manager

Raised in Michigan, I moved to Bozeman in 2011 to attend MSU. After getting my degree in Design Drafting I had plans to move on to another new place- but discovered I had fallen in love with Montana. There’s no where else I’d rather call home! I have many creative passions and just before joining BSVR got a chance to work as a finish carpenter making beautiful homes in Big Sky’s Yellowstone Club. My current position allows me to combine my hands-on nature with my 7 years of hospitality experience.

Big Sky activity: If you’re looking for a more challenging hike, check out Beehive Basin- the views are worth the climb!

Travel tip: You can never pack too many layers! Montana’s weather is always subject to change.



Eric Anderson | Marketing Director

Eric moved to Montana after studying Marketing at the University of Denver. Over the past twelve years Eric has been busy promoting recreational businesses in Montana through search engine marketing. He has started and sold several fly shops, lodges, and restaurants but now, with child in tow, the lure of entrepreneurship and a nomadic lifestyle is gone. When not working on BSVR's online presence Eric can be found fishing or shuttling his son to and from hockey.

Travel Tip: Yellowstone is only 45 minutes away but the ample public land surrounding Big Sky is equally special. You don't have to drive far to enjoy some spectacular nature here.

Favorite Big Sky Activity: October! More animals, less people, great weather (most of the time) and the best fishing of the year.
