    Spend the day at Bridger Bowl

    It only takes you about 20 minutes to get to Bridger Bowl from Bozeman. You can even take a Skyline bus to save on gas money. Bust out your skis/boards and hit the mountain!

    Go Snowshoeing

    Bozeman is like a snowshoe mecca. There are many trails and forest service lands open to snowshoers. From Hyalite to Fairy Lake, there is no shortage of terrain to explore.

    Visit Hot Springs

    Bozeman Hot Springs, Norris, and Chico are all less than an hour from Bozeman. If you want to get away and relax, hot springs are always a good choice.
