Winter in Montana can be fun, but you must be aware of the danger involved in cold weather as well. We have pulled together several sites and tips to help you prepare for and be able to enjoy the winter wonderland that awaits you.
As much as we want you to enjoy the winter, we also encourage you to take appropriate cautions when severe weather strikes. One of the most dangerous times can be when there is wind chill.

We encourage you to read the following to understand how best to be comfortable in the cold.
