Winter in Montana

A Powder Playground

If summer in Montana is heaven on earth (and we promise it is), then winter in Montana is the snow-covered version of heaven on earth—a haven for powder lovers. And Glacier Country is a wonderland of winter awe boasting seven downhill ski areas with 11,000+ acres of skiable terrain and 300+ inches of yearly snowfall. Some of the best snow in North America, in fact. Plus, with miles of brag-worthy backcountry, the depth of discovery is limitless. So whether it means relaxing in the hot tub of a grand mountain lodge after a day on the slopes, taking a holiday horse-drawn sleigh ride to a romantic dinner after snowshoeing in Glacier National Park, or embarking on a backcountry mountaineering or snowmobiling expedition, your version of winter in Montana is waiting.
