  • Yellowstone National Park — Big Sky is your gateway to Yellowstone National Park adventures, where geologic wonders and rugged nature are in a summer, or winter, day’s visit. Located less than an hour from the West Entrance, Big Sky is the ideal base camp to explore the Park, and then relax in close lodging accommodations and enjoy the adventures within. Read more about Yellowstone National Park.
  • Snowcoach Tours – Commercial snowcoach companies travel on designated park road routes that are not accessible by car during the winter. A snowcoach looks like a van that is designed to travel on snow and ice.
  • Dog Sledding — Imagine yourself gliding through a winter wonderland of majestic mountains with a team of beautiful huskies pulling you down the trail. The only sounds you hear are the panting of the dogs and the swish of the sled runners. Imagine the thrill of driving a team as you become one unit with these well-trained spirited athletes. No other method of travel over snow can compare with dog sledding.  Learn more.

  • Snowshoe Tours and Trails –No matter where you go snowshoeing in Big Sky, Montana you’ll be amazed at what you can see – snowflakes glistening in the Montana sun, snowshoe hare and elk tracks in pristine snow, and stunning views of the Spanish Peaks are typical of every outing. Snowshoeing is a great way to experience Montana in winter.  Learn more.
