You want to have something fun to do in winter, right?
When John Bozeman passed through the Gallatin Valley it was cold. When the railroad made it’s way down Bozeman Pass it was cold. And when the town paved 19th all the way out to Springhill Road and things started booming and growing into the vibrant college town and Yellowstone gateway it is today — it was cold. There are days you can stand on the ridge of the Bridgers and gaze down into this verdant valley of ours in the green of June but you better remind yourself that this is just a pause in the action. Bozeman is a winter town. But more importantly it is a place that addresses the six months of winter with a spirit and sense of joy. A place where it’s not a matter of getting through winter but getting all you can get out of winter. Which naturally leads us to the question, “If six months of winter is not enough, how about twelve?”
