Powder Magazine ranked Bozeman in the “top 32 ski towns in North America” and National Geographic, placed Bozeman in the “World's 25 Best Ski Towns.” In addition, Outside Magazine has ranked Bozeman as the 5th best college town in the United States, and ranks the city 15th in the United States for access to outside sports. This active outdoor lifestyle is coupled with a strong work ethic that has enabled Bozeman to rank number one as a business climate among cities under 100,000 in the United States, by American City Business Journals.
