Fun in the Winter

Fun in the Winter

Wintertime opens the doors to a whole new set of outdoor activities. Skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, skating and sledding are just a few of the ways to pass the long winter months.

Several local reservoirs such as East Fork Dam and Ackley Lake State Park are known to be the “hot spots” for ice fisherman.

The Little Belt Mountains become the haven for the avid snowmobiler where one will find an extensive trail system that is groomed regularly by local clubs.

Showdown Ski Area in the Little Belt Mountains provides excellent downhill skiing, while the Big Snowies and Judiths offer trackless powder for back country enthusiasts willing to “earn their turns.” Cross-country skiers will have no trouble finding room to roam in any of the mountains or trails around town.

And ice skaters can head to Frank Day Park where there is an out-door rink, complete with a warming house and wood stove to thaw the toes.

Don’t forget about those passionate about sledding. The numerous hills in Lewistown as well as those surrounding us, make this area a sledder’s paradise!!
