Jonathan taking on the mountain
Whether you’re a skier or a snowboarder, fall is when your anticipation for winter is at its peak! The snow starts to blanket the mountains white and you can feel the crisp winter air blowing in. I have been snowboarding for 15 years and snowboarded all over the world, but this will be my first winter living in Montana and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Montana is home to Big Sky Resort, which is home to “the BIGGEST skiing in America” and is where Travel + Leisure Magazine has chosen their “Trip of the Month”, but T+L didn’t chose any trip for their trip of the month; Austin-Lehman custom built a exclusive Big Sky Winter Getawayitinerary for them!
It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert skier/snowboarder or just starting out, Big Sky Resort has terrain for all levels and if you’ve never skied/snowboard opt for a lesson from their knowledgeable staff. With eight square miles of runs and 4,350 vertical feet laid out before your wide eyes you’re sure to find some open turns and fresh tracks. With an average snow fall of 400 inches, Big Sky Resort has plenty of snow to fulfill your winter dreams.
Don’t ski or snowboard? Austin-Lehman offeres a lot more than just a ski trip up to the mountains on this exclusive T+L itinerary. They offer 6 days/5 nights of the perfect winter getaway, Ski in/ski out hotels, dog sledding, a snow coach ride up to Montana Dinner Yurt, cross-country skiing in Yellowstone Park, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and a evening featuring a ride to dinner in a horse-drawn sled up to a cozy cabin.
Dog sledding in Big Sky
Dog sledding is something I have always wanted to try and ALA’s winter getaway gives you the chance to channel your inner-Iditarod champion and take the reins of the sled yourself! Another great activity ALA is offering is snowshoeing and cross-country skiing into Yellowstone National Park. See Yellowstone as very few do in the heart of winter and maybe catch a glimpse of a wolf pack on the hunt!
