YOUR WINTER GUIDE

As the final leaves fall from the valley’s aspens, and snow collects on the Spanish Peaks, the signs are unmistakable. Winter is about to envelop Montana. As Mother Nature casts her icy spell over the west, people have a choice — hibernate, head south, or embrace the winter that only the northern Rockies offers.

Maybe you take a break from the accumulating snow and join the audiences of Bozeman’s best plays or, a little more casual, aim to bowl your first 300.

Maybe this is the year you hit the slopes for the first time in a pair of skis or a snowboard. Perhaps you’re ready to conquer the advanced snowmobile trail that’s been on your list for years, or finally learn what curling is all about.

Like Montana’s sky, the possibilities are endless. So get out your layers. Breathe the crisp mountain air. Experience life in southwest Montana this winter.

YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE.
