Montana Travel GuideWhen to visit Montana
From skiing to white-water rafting, Montana offers outdoor activities that display its four varied seasons. The most popular time to visit is during the summer, though many snow sports enthusiasts come during the winter. Holidays and festivals during these two seasons also attract crowds. The spring and fall have reduced prices, fewer visitors, and mild weather, offering a pleasant alternative to the crowds of summer and colder temperatures of winter.
