For winter visits to Big Sky you HAVE to go on a sleigh ride dinner and book way in advance!
Summer or winter, the best BBQ in Montana is at Riverhouse and they have a super fun bar with arcade for kids.
What to Do
Ski! Ski! Ski! They have every winter activity you can imagine: trails for cross country and snow shoeing, as well as dog sledding and snowmobiling. You can visit Yellowstone in the winter by booking tours on special off road buses. We mostly ski as Big Sky has more terrain than you could cover in a week.
Yellowstone in the Winter! Sure you can visit Yellowstone in the winter but its glory is best seen in the summer!
What to Pack
Montana gets cold, pack plenty of layers, and hand warmers!
