Jackson Hole Summer Jobs
Flanked by the mountains of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, and the Gros Ventre Wilderness, Goosewing Ranch is an all-inclusive ranch nestled in a pristine valley 40 miles northeast of Jackson. Our unique dude ranch has a variety of jobs available for a four month season extending from June 1st through September 23rd.
The full-service ranch employs kitchen workers, lodge staff, ranch hands, and activities personnel – just to name a few. Ranch lodging is provided as well as opportunities to make life-long friends, learn and improve workforce skills, and explore the breathtaking terrain of the Jackson Hole valley. The close-knit staff works together to provide a high level of hospitality to guests, implement sustainable missions, and have a lot of fun.
We are seeking people who:

Our location is deep in the Gros Ventre Valley and not located in the town limits; there is no public transportation to and from the ranch. This is a chance to make lasting memories through a rewarding summer work program.
Goosewing Ranch would be a great fit for outgoing individuals that love working with people of many different backgrounds. Added bonus if you love hiking, horseback riding and exploring this beautiful country. During this great summer adventure, you’ll meet and make great friends and create lasting memories through exciting new experiences. In the process, we will help you discover this vast area though both education and adventure based experiences in an authentic Western setting. This is not a job for those looking to be constantly connected to their smart phone or those wanting to live in an urban setting.
Those seeking a lifestyle, a culture, a experience that you can’t find anywhere else–this is for you! Applicants should be enthusiastic about learning our culture and having the best summer of their life.
We are mostly seeking applicants that can complete our full season of employment from June 1 – September 23. There are limited spots for those with shorter duration dates. Our goal is to find individuals that are looking to grow with our business, that are dedicated, and will “ride for the brand.”
