We live here. We work here. We play here.
We work hard, to play hard.
We seek to create fans out of every customer by providing a compelling and innovative shopping experience that inspires the possibilities of adventure.
We will endeavor to recruit and employ talented, passionate and customer focused outdoor enthusiasts.
We are humbled by the responsibility and privilege of sharing in the journeys of our fans.
The possibilities are endless in Bigskycountry.com. We are a team of active outdoor enthusiasts in love with Montana and living out our dreams under a sky large enough to contain her majesty.
Bigskycountry.com is based in Montana - the epicenter for outdoor adventures. Founded by Vann's (an electronics and appliances retailer), our employee-owners are passionate about the products in their homes and the experiences that await outside their front door.
Where are we
Bigskycountry.com is located in Missoula, Montana. Where you can grab a double espresso on your way to casting flies for rainbow trout in a stream immortalized by Norman Maclean in "A River Runs Through It." Later, you might enjoy a burrito from a bus on Pine Street before hiking into the Rattlesnake National Wilderness Area. In the evening, you could dine on pasta, eggplant, beef or fish at a riverfront bistro and savor a beer from one of the local breweries. You might want to take in a concert outdoors at the Caras Park Pavilion or enjoy a theatrical production at The University of Montana.
And that's just summer time.
Our climate offers four distinct seasons which, in turn, offer lots of opportunities to pursue the sporting life. Hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, hunting, football, basketball, track and field, floating, kayaking ... the list goes on. And most of what we do is within minutes of where we live.
A few myths we must debunk: We have electricity. And phones. And cars. We also have great spaces, great places. fine folks and plenty of fun. In the new economy, they say you can live anywhere you like.
We like it here.
"I'm in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection.
But with Montana it is love. And it's difficult to analyze love when you're in it."
