Montana. Go Deeper.
15 UNDISCOVERED SKI AREAS
The Rockies scrape the moisture from storms, heaping dry powder over Montana’s 15 ski areas. In these hills, you find solitude—in the snowghosts of Whitefish, the powder fields of the Biggest Skiing in America and at Discovery Basin, where long groomers swoop over hundred-mile mountain views.
"It’s true—in Montana there’s elbow room. It becomes your mountain. You let a few chairs go by so you can catch your breath..." —Tom S., Albuquerque, NM
HOME OF GLACIER, GATEWAY TO YELLOWSTONE
Come winter, Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks' wildlife is more easily spotted than ever, drawn to the lower elevations and backdropped by snow. Glide past Yellowstone's geyser eruptions on cross-country skis, view bison herds through a toasty snowcoach window or take in Glacier's snowcapped peaks on a snowshoe tour.
"Snowcoaching into the Park is extremely special—you feel like it’s just you and a dozen other adventurers floating over this untouched land..." —Danielle B. Bakerstown, MA
MONTANA’S WINTER PLAYGROUND
Montana’s winters show you something different—that sled dogs are faster than you thought, dinner tastes better in a backcountry yurt, skijoring is thrilling even if you’re just watching and that yes, there are still places in the lower 48 where you can see the northern lights.
"One thing that really makes winter great in Montana is the night sky. There are places here where you can look 20 miles in any direction and not see a city light." —Ryan M., Bozeman, MT
