Okay, okay, we get it. As much as we love winter in Bozeman, Jack Frost is just not for everyone. But if someone is dragging you on a winter mountain getaway when you’re dreaming of palm trees, don’t panic! We have a few secrets up our sleeve to help you make it through in one piece.
Stay Warm By The Fireside (Or Out In The Sun)
Of course you know that fireside plus snow flurries equals the ultimate in cozy. Plus it’s the perfect way to get out of the elements while everyone else in your party is out in the cold, whether skiing, snowshoeing, or sledding it up. Add in an adult beverage (we’d recommend a spiked hot cocoa to really get the vibe) and you’re golden. But if you are seeking a little vitamin D, you’re in luck. With more than 300 days of sunshine in our neck of the woods, winter just got a whole lot brighter.
Whiskey Makes The Heart Grow Fonder
If you want to warm up from the inside out, the round up of local distilleries, breweries, wineries, and coffee shops in town can do the trick. When it comes to local flavor and staying inside off snowy streets, this is the way to go. You may even be able to double up and find a fireside here to snuggle by. Grab a book or bring a friend along for some quality convos, and you’ve got it made.

A Shopping Spree Keeps It Toasty
If your body demands a few extra layers when winter comes knocking (or if you just want to keep things cozy with a new look) hit Main Street’s bangin’ boutiques for a whole new wardrobe. Waterproof boots and wool socks? Schnee’s has you taken care of. How about a little something designer to wear on your next night out? The Root or Cosmica can get you dressed and out the door.
Dining Is Divine
A hot, fresh-made meal will warm you up, and the fine dining in Bozeman is way more than just fine. Small plates and fine wines at Corx, Blend, and PLONK will get you fired up with sips and nibbles, while favorites like Bisl, Feast Raw Bar & Bistro, and Blacksmith Italian roll out the local noms with plenty of class and sass.

Embrace Fun To Stay Warm
It’s okay to let winter persuade you to venture out into the great outdoors. Skating rinks and sledding hills are great to get the giggles on without making the commitment to head out into the wilds of Montana. Or with two ski areas within an hour of town, you can hit the slopes for a morning and then live it up in the toasty warm lodge before it’s time to head back to Bozeman.
Cozy Up In Luxury
If all else fails and winter is still just not your friend, that’s okay too. The RSVP Motel offers the perfect place to close the door and crank the heat, with bubbly on command, screaming fast wifi, and the Farmer’s Daughters Cafe on the property so you don’t have to venture far for filling and health-conscious choices. Bundle up in the chic kimono on hand, draw a bath filled with luxuriant products from Gilchrist & Soames, and then snuggle in under blissful Italian sheets to wait out the winter weather in style.
