Wintertime in Western Montana’s Glacier Country means one thing: snow—and snow means one thing: epic adventure. For years, Glacier Country visitors have enjoyed the many outdoor activities the season brings, and after a day of playing in our winter wonderland, the best way to unwind and embrace the colder temperatures is by soaking in the warm healing waters of a hot spring.
