Winter Wisely in Western Montana
Safety Comes First in the Last Best Place

Winter in Western Montana is a wonderland of outdoor adventure, and wide-open spaces plus fresh mountain air are both essential right now. In order to make sure we can all enjoy the splendor of the season—downhill and Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and more—responsible recreation is paramount. Stay up-to-date with travel regulations, be smart about avalanche preparedness, and be patient, respectful and kind—in our small towns, on the trails, on the ski hills.

Things to do in the Fall
The Great Outdoors

Six Feet
is All Downhill

There’s no question downhill skiing will look a little different this year as our ski areas adjust to safety regulations to make sure you have an authentic Montana ski experience and stay safe, too. In addition to extensive cleaning and sanitizing protocols, you can expect social distancing requirements as well as mask requirements when six feet of space is not possible. There will also be limited access to indoor spaces, and chairlift/lift-line restrictions to accommodate physical distancing. Help us out by doing your part, and we can all enjoy that 300 inches of fresh Montana powder.

Snowmobile the
Best of the West

One way to take advantage of all the space in Western Montana this winter is to power through. You’ll find world-class snowmobiling terrain in Glacier Country, plus fresh, untouched powder. Thousands of miles of groomed trails crisscross the mountain-meadow playgrounds, deep backcountry, ridgelines, and frozen lakes. Plus, our mountain towns lay out the welcome mats, even if things are a little different this year. There’s plenty of room to roam, whether you set out with or without a guide. Just make sure you’re ready to recreate responsibly.
