Amber Brask has been named the general manager of Montana’s historic 320 Guest Ranch. The daughter of the ranch owner, Brask takes charge of the historic property as the property's third female general manager since the ranch was founded in 1898. 

Ranch management has been a family affair since 1986 when Dave Brask bought the ranch as part of his company, Brask Enterprises. Amber Brask grew up working in every aspect of the property’s operation from front desk, housekeeping, restaurant and outside sales to riding the ranch’s mountain trails with the staff wranglers and fly-fishing in the Galatian River that runs through the ranch.

Brask attended Montana State University and received a bachelor’s degree from Boise State University in Idaho. She spent her college years working in hotels, and is experienced in every aspect of the business, from operations and food and beverage to sales and marketing.

The 320 Guest Ranch is a full-service property with 58 fully restored and modernized log cabins and mountain chalets. The property is set on 320 acres along the Gallatin River and Yellowstone National Park is only 45 minutes away.

The country's top "on-time airport" is getting a facelift. In fact, it's getting a new face entirely. Salt Lake City is building a new airport in the current location of its 50-year-old Salt Lake City International Airport. The new airport is being built in two phases, the first to be completed in mid-2020, and the second to be done in 2024.
