MONTANA

15 UNDISCOVERED SKI AREAS

Montana’s 15 ski areas run the gamut from immense Big Sky Resort to little mom-and-pops like Lost Trail Powder Mountain, each offering their own twist on the Montana experience. And while each resort has its own personality, every one of them is imbued with a similar dose of pure Montana: epic views, deep powder, honest western hospitality and wide-open spaces.

GLACIER & YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARKS

Opportunities for solitude abound. Cross-country ski past steam-breathing bison to Old Faithful or tour Yellowstone from the cozy comfort of a snowcoach. Strap on snowshoes or take a guided backcountry ski trip through Glacier’s untouched winter wilderness. Both offer a chance to marvel at Montana’s wealth of natural wonders.

MILLIONS OF ACRES OF UNTRACKED POWDER

Try a new winter sport this year—put on some skis and hitch yourself to a horse for a bit of skijoring or try your hand at ice fishing. Learn how to ice climb or handle a team of sled dogs. Of course, there are tamer options, like heading straight to a soak in one of Montana’s many natural hot springs. Whatever way you choose to spend your time in Montana, you’ll leave feeling that you’ve touched something deep in winter’s core and deep in yourself.
