Heading out for a winter adventure in Big Sky? Ensuring you stay warm and dry is the key to making the most of your snow-filled day. Don't let discomfort dampen your winter spirit – follow our handy checklist to make sure you're geared up for a cozy and enjoyable time in Big Sky. 


Snow Gear: 

  • Hearty gloves: From scraping the snow off of your car to tearing it up on the mountain, sturdy gloves are a must for a comfy and warm stay. And remember, two gloves are better than one! 
  • A buff: Shield your face from the biting wind and winter sun with a trusty buff – your skin will thank you. 
  • Sweat-wicking base layers: Stay comfortable and dry on the trails with sweat-wicking base layers. It's the secret to keeping warm while you explore. 
  • Warm socks: Keep your feet cozy and moisture-free with woolen socks. Happy feet, happy adventurer! 
  • Waterproof outer layers: Include a winter coat and pants that can withstand snow and sleet because staying dry is as important as staying warm.  
  • Optional Warm Extras: Hand and toe warmers can be a game-changer, especially with kids or if you're prone to feeling the cold. Pack them as a winter bonus! 


Out on the Town: 

  • Après-Ready Bathing Suit: After conquering the slopes, unwind in a hot tub or catch live music in Bozeman at the Bozeman Hot Springs. Don't forget your bathing suit for the ultimate après experience. 
  • Sturdy Footwear: Even when heading out for dinner, sidewalks can be slick. Choose sturdy, well-soled boots, or shoes to prevent slips, and opt for waterproof or water-resistant footwear to keep your toes warm and dry. 
  • Hat and Scarf Combo: Keep the chill at bay as you explore Town Center's charming shops and restaurants with a cozy hat and scarf. 


The opportunities for winter fun are endless in Big Sky, just make sure you're equipped with the right gear to fully embrace the season. Stay warm, stay dry, and let the snowy adventures begin!
