Braaap Sky Country

The Bozeman, Big Sky and Yellowstone area of Montana is one of the best places to see some of the country’s most beautiful public lands by way of snowmobile. And don’t worry — you don’t need to have any experience at all to spend a day motoring through the mountains. Our area’s outfitters offer everything from tame trail tours through Yellowstone Park to guided rides into remote high-alpine zones to self-served rentals where you can choose your own backcountry adventure.

Down Days Can Be the Best Days!

Vacation down days used to be about sleeping in, relaxing in the spa and looking forward to a good night’s sleep. When you throw a few kids and an equally exhausted spouse into the equation, those down days can sometimes leave you more worn out than another day on the slopes. Luckily, the Bozeman/Big Sky/Yellowstone area of Montana is full of alternative activities to keep everybody busy and entertained.

Game On (The Menu)

Wild game was essential to the survival of early pioneers in the Montana Territory and it remains a staple of our region’s food culture today. Cooking techniques and recipes have evolved in leaps and bounds over the years, but the roots of these dishes all stem from the same local fauna that early settlers enjoyed at their dinner tables.

Nowadays, this mega resort (the third largest in North America) consists of 300 trails serviced by 34 lifts on 5,800 acres of skiable terrain, giving skiers an average of almost two acres each.
