8 Worst Things About Living in Bozeman

On Oct 10, 2018

1. THE FOMO

Fear of missing out on something awesome is real around here. While you may have climbed a mountain over the weekend, when you get back to service you’ll find out that your friends backcountry skied fresh powder and your co-worker caught a 22” brown.

 2. THE TRAFFIC

If you’re from a big city, you’ll laugh at Bozeman’s traffic woes. But for those of us who remember when 19th was a dirt road, the recent traffic jams have been tough to get used to.

3. THE INDECISION

Do we go climbing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing or rafting? That’s the conversation happening all over town on any given Saturday morning. So much to do, so little time.

4. THE WINTERS

Winter lasts for a good 9 months around here, which is a tough pill for many to swallow. It can be all fun and games for the first several powder days but come May, it’s safe to say everyone is sick of the snow.

5. THE DISTANCE

Getting to any major metropolitan area from Bozeman means a lot of windshield time. In recent years the airport has added a number of direct flights to places like Chicago, New York and Atlanta which is helpful. But the reality is we are hundreds of miles from what you might consider “civilization”.


6. THE GROWING PAINS

30 years ago, Bozeman was nothing but a little cow town. Now it’s the fastest growing city of its size in the U.S. Growth like that is bound to come with some growing pains. Affordable housing, infrastructure and overcrowded schools are just a few of the challenges Bozeman is facing. Click here to read more about Bozeman’s growing pains.

7. THE SUPERVOLCANO

The Yellowstone supervolcano is one of the largest in the world. And little old Bozeman is right on the edge of it. While there’s no telling when or if it will decide to erupt, if it does, Bozeman will have a front row seat. For a moment at least.

8. THE COST OF LIVING

There’s a joke that Bozeman residents pay $10,000 a year in “mountain tax”. The cost of a rental in Bozeman is not too far from what you would pay in a major metropolitan area and the average cost of a home is floating around $800,000. But with the access to the mountains, incredible scenery and high quality of life, most residents agree that life in Bozeman is well worth it.
