Scenic Beauty for All Seasons
Two national parks anchor Montana – Glacier to the north and Yellowstone to the south. These parks and the seemingly endless natural wonders between them – including 55 state parks, 15 wilderness areas, and numerous national and state forests – make Montana an incredible frontier for adventure and discovery. Rafting, hiking and biking can be enjoyed during summer on numerous lakes, rivers and trails throughout the state.
Winter activities in Montana can be as adventurous as you like. Travelers attracted to fun in the snow will find some of the best skiing available at 15 ski areas, including Whitefish Mountain Resort near Glacier National Park, and Big Sky Resort near Yellowstone. Beyond the slopes, winter visitors to these areas can also enjoy dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobile tours and snowy expeditions to the national parks.
