Glacier National Park Winter

There’s no such thing as a bad season to visit Northwestern Montana’s Glacier Country: summer brings miles of hiking, swimming, and boating; fall larches bring fiery color changes to the hills; spring melts bring white water and clear roads for cyclists with cool weather. But winter is the crowning glory, with snow sports making for an outdoor culture as lively as in summer, just minus the crowds.

Winter may give pause to summer-weather sports enthusiasts not used to the colder conditions, but never fear: you don’t have to be an expert cross country skier, snowshoer, or snowmobiler to enjoy the utopia that the Crown of the Continent offers in winter.

Guided excursions let the novice winter explorer delve into backcountry goodies without having to spend years studying the nuances of a particular sport.

Make a reservation and grab your gloves, because that’s all you’ll need to bring along on these guided getaways to the wilderness.

Swan Mountain Snowmobile Rentals & Tours

The guides at Swan Mountain will take you out on a tour of Canyon Creek, Desert Mountain or Crane Mountain. With family friendly options, hotel pickup, and tours as short as two hours on top of professional instruction, you’ll be ready to sled in no time.

Dog Sled Adventures

Speaking of sleds, Dog Sled Adventures will bring you closer to nature, nestled under cozy elk furs on a 12-mile loop through the Stillwater State Forest. Take in the view pulled by a team of sled dogs, exploring winter without the sounds of modern day before finishing up snuggled by the fire with cookies and hot chocolate.

Glacier Adventure Guides

Can’t pick which sport to try? Head to the hills with Glacier Adventure Guides, offering snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, cross country skiing, and winter overnight trips in Glacier and the surrounding area. And with full gear rental options with lunch and transportation included, really all you have to do is show up.

 

Pair a winter adventure with a cozy lodge room stay at the Historic Tamarack Lodge & Cabins and return to an intimate fireside retreat after a long day exploring!
