Montana’s four distinct seasons offer weather that could—maybe—be referred to as a bit dramatic. In the best way possible, of course. Montana's Glacier Country, and our regional community anchors of Kalispell, Missoula and Whitefish, experiences diverse weather conditions ranging from winter snowfalls of 300+ inches (in the mountains) to long summer days, often followed by beautiful and mild autumns, complete with vibrant hues of yellow and gold.

WINTER: Our winters drop plenty of snow. If you're planning on spending time outdoors, be sure to dress warmly and layer clothing. Always travel with snow boots, a hat and scarf, gloves and a warm winter coat.
