Montana is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.
Big Sky Resort has runs for skiers of all levels.
Montana’s Big Sky Resort offers 5,850 acres of skiable terrain that’s perfect for a spring day full of long runs. Peak season is late December and early January, but the mountains still tend to get snow later in the season.
If you’re looking to try something new, consider Nordic skiing, which has a free heel bind and is popular throughout the region.
Visiting Big Sky in the spring also gives you an opportunity to enjoy the Shedhorn Ski Mountaineering Race. The endurance competition is open to experts and novices alike, but you can also watch the race as a spectator.
When I was in Big Sky, I stayed at Lone Mountain Ranch, a property that’s over 100 years old and sits just north of Yellowstone National Park.
It was a true immersion into the wild, as the ranch offered horse-drawn sleigh rides to log cabins beneath the stars. My stay enabled me to fully embrace my inner cowboy and appreciate the majestic American West.
Many think Montana’s outdoor activities are limited to skiing until summer, but that’s not the case. The state is home to some of the world’s best fly fishing, and March is ideal for anglers looking for early-season catches.
