While summer and winter are known as the top months to visit Big Sky, there is another time to consider. Montana in the fall, often considered the off-season, is one of the best-kept-secret times to plan your visit. Not only will you have a better chance of securing your top rental from Two Pines Properties, but you can also explore Big Sky and all the things to do here without large crowds.
What to Do during a Big Sky Autumn
During the fall, Big Sky experiences idyllic weather, with temperatures starting in the 70s and falling as time moves on. This means you have plenty of time to get outdoors and create lifelong memories.
One activity anyone visiting Montana in the fall needs to experience is leaf peeping. The already stunning landscape is made more breathtaking as trees take on their autumn hues. The cottonwood and aspen trees are covered in fall foliage of gold and red. There are several places near Big Sky to take in these examples of Mother Nature’s beauty, including Yellowstone National Park or Ousel Falls Park Trail.
This time of year is also great for wading into the water and fly fishing. Whether you’re new to this sport or a seasoned angler, the best way to cast your line is with a knowledgeable guide. Gallatin River Guides offers several year-round trips for both full and half-day outings. Be sure to get your fishing license beforehand.
There is always something happening in Big Sky, and fall is no exception. The end of October marks the return of the annual Haunted Peaks Halloween Festival in Big Sky Town Center. The three-day celebration is filled with fun for the whole family, including a costume block party, a horror film festival, and a haunted run to the pub.
