The Autumn Equinox marks the official start of fall. Autumn is an exciting time to be in Big Sky, Montana. The fish are biting, the temperatures drop, the leaves change colors, and the steady flow of visitors takes a small break before ski season. It's the ideal time to visit our mountain town.
Whether you want to kick back and relax, enjoy a stunning hike in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness on a crisp afternoon, spot wildlife in Yellowstone, go hunting for bighorn sheep, or take a scenic drive throughout the Treasure State, you won't be disappointed with fall in Big Sky Country. You might even decide that the laid back approach to fall in Big Sky is your favorite time of year.
If you're looking for things to do in October in Big Sky, it's definitely a quieter time of year than the jam packed summer months or the wild winter season, but there are still a few things that you might want to add to your calendar. Check out our events calendar before booking your trip!
Perhaps the most exciting thing that happens in October is that the mountains typically get their first dusting of snow. That means it's time to start the countdown to opening day of the Big Sky ski season. Hope you're as ready for winter as we are!
