Cross-Country Skiing

Revel in the peace of the winter landscape when you ski Montana’s cross-country and skate-skiing trails. These maintained trails will lead you into the beauty of Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks or to the secret favorite vistas of locals. When your day is done, enjoy a warm fire and a cup of hot cocoa. Cross-country skiing is a great option for those who don’t enjoy downhill. But all trails are within driving distance of downhill ski areas—so you can strap on both skinny and fat skis during your trip.
