Sleigh Rides: Dashing Through the Snow

After a full day of skiing, skating, sledding or snowshoeing, it's time to cozy up with your sweets and take a horse-drawn sleigh ride underneath a starry night sky. Drift off in your own Montana winter wonderland with the jingling of sleigh bells as your lullaby, breathe in the crisp mountain air and take in the snow-covered landscape.


How To Dress

The most basic rule is: it's winter and you'll be outside, so dress to stay warm. If you have ski clothes wear them. Remember, since you won't be exerting yourself physically, you'll get cold faster. Wear the warmest boots you have, as your feet will be the first to feel the cold. Hats and gloves are a must. When you're zipping through brisk mountain air in a sleigh, the chill can set in quickly — especially on exposed skin.

Where to Catch a Sleigh

Maybe you're looking for a quick spin around the countryside or for a jovial outing filled with friends. Perhaps you're looking for a cozy evening out under the stars. Whatever your preference, you'll find that Montana's sleigh ride companies provide plenty of options. At most of our destinations ski resorts, you can arrange sleigh rides near the mountain. Or if you're staying at a guest ranch or lodge, chances are sleigh rides are offered as a standard winter activity.
