Big Sky Weather
Big Sky weather is something special – clear skies and sunshine nearly every day during the summer months, with mild temperatures perfect for Summer Activities. During the winter, the area gets a good amount of snow but temperatures rarely drop much below freezing. This makes it ideal for year-round outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, fishing, golfing, and so much more. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year and over 272" of snow around town in the winter, the weather in Big Sky is appealing to nearly everyone that likes a change of season.
How to Pack for Big Sky Weather
Though Big Sky gets fairly consistent weather patterns, it is still in the Rocky Mountains which can create quickly shifting weather. Packing in layers and with diversity is helpful and almost a must for most people. Wool socks, thermal layers, and winter accessories are necessary from November to March. However come spring, summer, and fall, thin easy-to-shed clothing is key. Be sure you have options for water-resistant jackets and shoes or boots valuable for the periodic rain, snow, or mud. Summertime definitely calls for shorts, sundresses, and comfortable light clothing but be sure to always have a sweater handy."
