Winter in Montana is a season that needs to be explored. From the 300+ inches of fresh powder that blanket our downhill ski areas to perfectly groomed snowmobiling trails that lead to epic views of Glacier National Park, Montana’s Glacier Country is a winter lover’s dream. And in Montana, we like to make dreams come true. This winter, we’ll be giving away weekly prizes that include lift tickets for our six ski areas, guided snowmobile tours and cozy stays in some of our most charming towns.
