We love Bozeman in summer as much as the next person, but this town has a special magic to it in winter. Sun glinting off of glittering ice crystals, a cushy blanket of fresh fallen snow, and an atmosphere of twinkle and glow that reaches from the slopes to Main Street. It’s easy to have an ethereal experience with a winter trip to Bozeman, but we wanted to throw our two cents in anyway! Grab your boo and get ready for a little romance. Here are our top recs for a winter wonderland vacation under the Big Sky.
Nothing says winter magic like a turn or two out on the ice. Bozeman has public skating rinks in several public parks around town that are maintained throughout the winter, or you can head under cover to one of the indoor rinks if the weather turns dicey. Lace up your skates and grab your sweetie’s hand to experience the rush of a gentle skate.
Gourmet Hot Cocoa At La Châtelaine Chocolat Co.
Once you’ve returned from your icy adventures, head to Main Street to experience an otherworldly hot chocolate enlightenment at La Châtelaine. Their hot cocoa will warm you from the inside out, and you can expect far more than just some Swiss Miss mix. This treat is well worth the indulgence. While you’re there, take the time to taste a truffle or two from their handcrafted selection, but be sure to save room for lunch! This is a dessert first kind of day.
Get a munch or two at the Farmer’s Daughters, home to healthy and delicious dishes served in a chic atmosphere, celebrating the arrival of the LA health food scene in the BZN. Grab a bowl or a wrap that you can really sink your teeth into, and share a special moment while you watch the snow fall outside. Plus, you’re posed perfectly for a little afternoon delight in your luxe room at RSVP, right next door.
Step out into the twinkle and twee of downtown Bozeman, and head to the boutiques. Treat yourself and your honey to a new wardrobe, or pick up gifts for everyone you need to shop for. Between galleries, clothing boutiques, fine jewelers, and lifestyle must-haves, Main Street is well worth exploring.
Sleigh Ride And Dinner
You don’t have to go far to hit the perfect movie moment hard. Mosey out to Sunrise Pack Station for a jingling sleigh ride that will set the mood for an evening of sweet nothings and gazing into each other’s eyes. Maybe that’s a little too on-the-nose for fairytale, but if that degree of cute is wrong, we don’t want to be right!
Head back to town to cap off the evening with a romantic meal and a handcrafted cocktail to toast to your love and a magical mountain getaway well spent. We recommend one of the winter concoctions that local cocktail bars and distilleries around town have thought up to make those winter nights just a little warmer.
