Big Sky Profile


Overview

Big Sky is a very small town located in the state of Montana. With a population of 2,455 people and just one neighborhood, Big Sky is the 33rd largest community in Montana. Big Sky has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Big Sky, where the median household income is $65,602.00.

Big Sky home prices are not only among the most expensive in Montana, but Big Sky real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Big Sky isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Big Sky are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Big Sky is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Big Sky who work in management occupations (13.00%), sales jobs (12.45%), and food service (12.32%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Big Sky is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Big Sky has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Big Sky has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Big Sky than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Big Sky may be for you.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Big Sky spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 17.51 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

In Big Sky, a lot of people use the bus to get to work every day though Big Sky is a relatively small town. Those that ride the bus are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
