Most Snow in SW Montana

It's no secret that Cooke City gets the most snow out of any region in SW Montana. Storms sweep through the Snake River Basin and are channeled towards Cooke City - the pattern tends to be frequent snow with many storms being big producers. This combined with the cold, high peaks means abundant, low density snow and reliably good ski quality. Come see for yourself, there's a reason BPG is located here!
