Glacier National Park alone has over 700 miles of hiking trails!

Skiing
Montana is home to the biggest skiing resort in America. The Big Sky resort is spread over more than 5000 acres of snow-clad ground, enough to host thousands of skiers at one time. Other than skiing, enthusiasts can join in the fun of guided dogsledding, sleighing, and adventure zipline. You may even get to indulge in snowboarding or jump into the hot springs in other regions. For those planning an overnight or weekend stay, there are lodges and resorts available. 

Big Sky’s chairlifts are also quite famous around the country for their technologically-advanced chairlifts which come with seat heaters and weather domes. Snowshoeing, ice climbing, snowboarding, dog sledding, and mountain biking are also done here.

Some other places you can consider for some snow-filled fun are the Lost Trail Powder Mountain, Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana Snowbowl, Bridger Bowl, and Discovery Ski Area. 

Fishing and boating 
Montana is home to a huge number of lakes. One of them is Lake McDonald, situated inside the Glacier National Park.

History of Montana

History of Montana

History of Montana

Montana was discovered and explored by Euro-Americans in the early 1800. Before that, the state was sparsely populated by Native American tribes.

The Crow community who spoke the Siouan language were the first to arrive in Montana.

Most indigenous people were nomadic, following the buffalo herds and thriving on seasonal cycles. 

The discovery of silver and gold mines in Montana led to an increase in the movement of people to this place. Helena, its capital city, was founded by gold miners. This large inflow of white Euro-Americans led to conflict with the local Native Americans. After a lot of bloodshed, disputes were resolved by creating separate reservations for the Natives. In 1972, to preserve the Native American community and its culture, the state passed a constitution that mandated educating the tribal history of Montana.
