Bozeman is the gem of Big Sky Country, bustling with activities for all seasons. Winter brings powder to the peaks at Bridger Bowl Ski Area and nearby Big Sky Ski Resort, while the spring brings high waters and thrilling rafting on the Gallatin River. Summer is splendid for backpacking the Gallatin Divide, and fall colors bring nearby Yellowstone Park to life as the wildlife come out to mate. The city's cultural scene thrives with annual events like the American Indian Pow Wow and the rodeo.
Some 400 inches of annual snowfall, 85 miles of named runs and loads of room for every maneuver make Montana's spectacular Big Sky a big draw. Flyfishing and time at Solace Spa occasionally lure those with a prevailing passion for powder off the slopes.
<p>West Yellowstone might be a small town, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fabulous place for a family holiday. Surrounded by mountains and Yellowstone National Park, there is so much for both kids and adults to do. West Yellowstone gets its name because the western entrance to Yellowstone National Park is located in the town. Using that entrance takes you right to Old Faithful, the most famous geyser in the world. You can also hike there in the spring and summer and cross country ski the same trails in the winter. </p><p>There is no season that closes West Yellowstone. In the warm months you can fish, bird watch, or hike the trails. Horseback riding is so much fun in the open country. For the more adventurous soul there is white water rafting. Mountain biking is a challenging activity for the physically fit. And, of course, there is golf at the Island Park Village Resort. </p>
