The Need:

With the global war on terror escalating more each week, Special Operations will always rise to the occasion.  While home on leave, Big Sky Bravery will provide these soldiers with a challenging experience and the opportunity to strengthen the camaraderie between Special Operations and our staff.  With our exclusive groups, we will tackle each new challenge as a team to leave a lasting impression that only Montana can offer.  This experience meets both their need for thrill, and their need to recharge.

Program Description:

Our programs were designed by over 20 Active Duty and Veteran Special Operations warriors.  We followed the lesson "Always listen to the guy on the ground" described in the book, "The Men, The Mission and Me" by *Pete Blaber.  We had one goal in mind, what would they benefit from the most while home on leave?  Our guides are experts, our groups are exclusive, and we plan on establishing a home base here in Bozeman to serve the SOF community for decades to come.  With current family deployed under SOCOM, we understand the importance of each warrior's privacy. Our focus is to build lifelong relationships and trust with each participant.  We pride ourselves on protecting the identity of each soldier.
