things to do in the winter
Our backcountry is brag worthy. Glacier Country is home to thousands of acres of untouched off-trail powder, whether you’re looking for an easy escape or technical terrain. Glacier National Park itself is open year-round and offers a sublimely beautiful and surreal location for an alpine tour. Explore the heart of Montana’s backcountry—the Swan Mountains.
Backcountry terrain can be wild and rugged, making backcountry skiing and avalanche safety of the utmost importance. It’s always necessary to have proper backcountry ski gear and knowhow. Your best bet is a Guided Backcountry Ski Tour, but for self starters…know your snow.
Adventure-filled days in and around Glacier National Park with the comfort of award-winning restaurants and friendly hospitality in downtown Whitefish.
While winter in Glacier National Park means fewer lodging options and limited road access, it also means epic backcountry skiing. The National Park Service is our go-to resource for all Glacier National Park safety help. See Glacier Country’s Going-to-the-Sun Road status feed here. After gathering your safety gear, pick up your backcountry pass and a skiing brochure from the park headquarters at the Apgar Visitor Center on your way into the park’s backcountry winter wonderland.
