Winter weather in Montana has a reputation for being harsh, cold, and very snowy. But truth be told, in between snow storms, skies are primarily blue and cloudless, and the roads are cleared of snow quickly (after all, they’ve got plenty of heavy machinery that’s well-equipped for the job).

Additionally, here is a list of the seven winter storms that go down in Montana history. So while Montana is a beautiful state in the winter, it’s worth mentioning that you should always be prepared for rapid weather changes, have good snow tires on your car, and plenty of warm weather gear.
