Swan Mountain Outfitters – Glacier Division is a family-owned company that provides interpretive horseback riding for the general public. We have 3 locations inside Glacier National Park and one location right at the West Entrance on US Forest Service land. We hire seasonal employees to work from the end of May into September each summer. Please note we are a high volume trail ride operation, not a guest ranch.

Whether for one summer or many seasons, employment with Swan Mountain Outfitters provides a unique, educational and gratifying work experience in one of the most beautiful and rugged places in the world. While the work is demanding and the hours are long, it offers the employees a one of a kind opportunity to spend much of their summer with horses and great people.
