National Parks: Yellowstone versus Glacier

Posted by Kali Gillette on Jun 5, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Our National Park System is nothing short of phenomenal. These vast swaths of land preserved for their natural wonders are something everyone should experience. Montana has a total of nine National Park service areas, but the two most famous, Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park, are also the most different.

Glacier’s tall, jutting mountains, massive moving glaciers, and mountain lakes are a vast contrast to Yellowstone’s wide open spaces, big rivers, simmering hot pots and shooting geysers.

Yet, the two can’t be compared; each has its own beauty and intrigue.

Spring Wildlife Watching in Yellowstone National Park

Posted by Kali Gillette on May 15, 2019 8:00:00 AM

One of the highlights of visiting Yellowstone National Park is watching the wildlife move about in their natural setting. Spring is especially magical with newborns playing alongside their moms, giddy with new life. The park is less crowded in the spring, which makes it a nice time to leisurely make your way through. You’ll definitely see the more common animals such as bison and elk; but if you’re diligent, (and an early riser) you have a good chance of seeing bear, moose and even the elusive wolf. Stop at the local visitor center to find out where the most recent activity is taking place.

Snowboarding Around Bozeman

Posted by Kali Gillette on Mar 21, 2019 8:00:00 AM

If there is one thing that all snowboarders have in common, it’s the love of a good carve. Whether it’s deep powder and wide open terrain, or technical tree runs, the feeling of digging that board in is what distinguishes snowboarders from skiers. Fortunately, there are plenty of spectacular turns around Bozeman and it takes no time at all to earn them.

Bridger Bowl is located just sixteen miles from Bozeman up Bridger Canyon, and Big Sky Resort is just an hour from town. Both are renown ski areas with terrain that is both exhilarating and humbling. While the areas are very different from one another, both will leave you wanting to come back for more!

Making A Day Of It: Snowshoeing In Yellowstone National Park

Posted by Kali Gillette on Feb 21, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Yellowstone National Park is just a stone’s throw from Bozeman, and seeing it in its winter glory is something special. Snowshoeing is one of the most intimate ways of experiencing the natural beauty, and it’s an easy activity for any age and ability.

The options are plentiful; you can plan an excursion for any duration and skill level. All trails and roads are open to snowshoeing; however, if you are on a ski trail, snowshoers are required to walk alongside the trail to keep the ski tracks in order.

We’ve created a couple of itinerary options with one short and one long, but don’t be afraid to get out and make tracks on your own!
