Strap on some snowshoes and hit the open wilderness of Montana.  It is like taking a long slow walk through a picturesque winter postcard.  With all of the open space, you will feel like the only person around as you enjoy all of the winter scenery. From the local spots like Pattee Canyon Recreation Area and Rattlesnake National Recreation Area to Lookout Pass Ski Trails and Seeley Creek Nordic Ski Trails there are many miles of exploration ahaed of you in a pair of snowshoes.  For more info:  Snowshoeing Missoula
