Big Sky, MT- a summer itinerary


Big Sky, MT is known for its skiing, but it’s even more beautiful in the summer with its blooming wildflowers, scenic mountain ranges, and plenty of outdoor activities. The people in Montana are nice, happy folks and the weather is amazing-warm during the day and cool at night. 

Although this itinerary covers a weekend’s worth of activities, I’ve included additional activities if you can swing a longer visit. You can easily spend a week here, especially with a day trip to Yellowstone.
