It’s skiing isn’t on your list, then we highly suggest a fun activity that’s right up the road. Snowmobiling will give you access and take you to higher levels of some beautiful scenery in Montana. Take a half-day or full-day trip of our winter wonderland. The trails are well groomed and the guides are great.  You don’t have to be experienced to ride one. Warm gear is provided, handlebars are heated… you’ll be warm and toasty! It’s a fun experience to talk about, long after you get home. Or brag about.  

To learn more, you can visit Northwest Montana Adventure Company, right up the road in Olney, MT or simply click HERE


With an abundance of parks and wilderness at your beck and call, give snowshoeing a try.

You can snowshoe locally or venture out to Glacier National Park and enjoy the breathtaking beauty during a quieter time in the park.
