Ski, dog sled, or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Glacier Country
In Western Montana, winter comes in wild and free, dropping an average of 300+ inches (7.6 meters) of light and fresh snow on the Rocky Mountains as it creates a place that can only be called one thing: a powder utopia.
For downhill ski and snowboard enthusiasts, there are more than 7,000 acres (2,832 hectares) of terrain across six ski resorts. Visit our world-class ski area, Whitefish Mountain Resort—ranked The Best in the West for Overall Satisfaction by Ski Magazine readers—offering access to six new runs across 200 new acres (80 hectares) of terrain. Additionally, Chair 5 has been relocated to the East Rim giving guests access to early and late season ski conditions found on the upper mountain.
For adrenaline-pumping winter fun off the mountain, Western Montana’s outfitters and guides offer exhilarating winter activities like snowmobiling, backcountry skiing in Glacier National Park, cat skiing and dog sledding. Montana’s Glacier Country is also home to plentiful cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. Round out a winter day with a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a soak at one of our natural hot springs resorts.
Western Montana also has a variety of accommodations—ranging from cozy to luxe—and is easily accessible via international airports in Missoula (MSO) and Kalispell (FCA).
