10 Active Winter Vacations That Annihilate Winter Blues

Dog Sled and Dine in a Yurt in Big Sky, Montana

Big Sky Resort

Watch your family’s spirits soar in Big Sky, Montana where snow-kissed mountains awaken a sense of adventure. Skiing is the name of the game at Big Sky Resort, the third-largest ski resort in North America, but you can also book a dog sledding adventure and share a candle-lit dinner in a backcountry yurt. Strap up a team of excited Alaskan huskies and mush through the mountains with Spirit of the North Sled Dog. Ride a snowcat up Lone Peak to a wood stove-warmed Montana Dinner Yurt. Your bellies will be cozy too, full of cheesy French onion soup, tender filet mignon, and Toblerone chocolate fondue. Live music accompanies the dinner, plus you and the kids will have a ball sledding in the torch-lit evening snow.

Snowmobile in Yellowstone National Park

Most roads in Yellowstone National Park are closed to car traffic from mid-December to mid-March, but you can zoom around the scenic landscape via snowmobile or snow coach. Sign up for a guided tour with Two Top Snowmobile Rental and spend the day gliding around the Old Faithful Geyser Basin or Grand Canyon of Yellowstone (December 15, 2022-February 28, 2023). Feel the snowy breeze on your face as you ride a single or double Ski-Doo past bubbling paint pots, herds of bison, and other natural wonders in the quietest time to visit the park. Full-day guided tours provide all the gear and park knowledge to allow you to fully geek out. Depart out of West Yellowstone, not from Big Sky and Bozeman, in a group of up to nine sleds.
