Warren Miller + Montana = A Match Made in Winter Heaven
Being a born and raised Montana girl, I know that winter here is pretty special. But I also know that not everyone thinks of Big Sky Country as a winter travel destination, especially when there are so many other places that have great ski scenes, solid snow and multiple resorts to choose from. But I do know that there’s at least one guy who knows that winter in Montana is pretty rad: Warren Miller.
7 Things to do during Winter in Montana if you don’t ski
Let’s face it: downhill skiing and snowboarding are two of Montana’s favorite winter pastimes. Heck, just in Western Montana’s Glacier Country alone there are six ski areas that have more than 7,000 acres of terrain.
The Top 5 Winter Activities in Montana
I’m just going to say it: winter in Montana is the stuff that powder-lovin’ dreams are made of. Not only are we situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, but four Montana ski resorts recently ranked among the “Top 10 Deepest Snowpacks in the US” list.

Winter in Montana: It’s Here

Living on Montana Time
I like to go for drives. Sometimes there’s a specific destination in mind, while other times I’ll jump in the car and see where the road takes me, just for the fun of it. Last week, I grabbed my partner in crime and we headed up Highway 12 toward Lolo Pass. The goal? To see […]
Get Winter While the Getting’s Good
While we’ve had a touch of snow this week, we’ve also had something else that’s pretty great…sunshine and warmer weather! Which is creating a beautiful backdrop for hitting the slopes and trails of Western Montana.
Winter Blues – No Thank You
I’m going to be straight with you…sometimes winter in Montana can be long. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic season, but every once in a while I find myself looking at the falling snow and dreaming of a time that will bring plenty of sunshine and open-toed shoes.
Last week you were good to me. Oh so good. If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were trying to woo me. I spent a solid amount of the week exploring and experiencing some of what you offer during winter. I’ve heard rumors of your winters scaring people, but not me. I know you’re […]
