When you tell people you’re visiting Montana in winter, it’s pretty much assumed you’re going on a ski trip. But that assumption isn’t just unfair to you — it’s unfair to Montana itself. Sure, the state is an epic ski destination, but don’t let that overshadow the other winter pastimes Montana has to offer.
Ski trips are cool and all, but a skijoring adventure through snow-covered wilderness? Dog sledding through the wilds of Big Sky Country? Plowing through beers, not fresh snow, at breweries with dramatic mountain views? That’s what a real Montana winter is all about. So go ahead, hit the slopes if you want, but if you don’t ski — don’t worry. You’ll find plenty to do in Montana come winter.
