    It's mountain weather so pack like it! The weather can change in a hurry so be prepared. If you are going out in the fall the weather can go from 60F to 30F in a matter of hours. It can also go from sunshine to blizzard! Don't get stranded in the mountains with a t-shirt, it could mean your life. If you're hiking or skiing/snowboarding in the...

    Bring clothes for the previous Montana season of the current. In other words, if it's Spring, bring Winter clothes too. Last year we had 12' of snow fall on June 13th! Always have a jacket handy, Umbrellas are NEVER used by locals(never needed). Family Travel Go low-tech, digital isn't well supported here yet. Although if asked nicely, business...

    If you go during late Spring or late Summer, be sure and take some warm clothing. We were there the week of 9/10/01, and we encountered snow. You'll want to be sure and take both cameras (still and video). If possible, try to take a camera that has either wide angle and/or telephoto lens.

You will have to be ready for anything as the weather can turn on a dime especially in the higher country. I have seen plenty of snowfall in June up in the hills. Winter is cold or colder averaging 25 F above 0 during the...

    Pack enough gear to be able to rough it in the wilderness. Also, while it can get hot during the day, the weather can change and it does get chilly in the evening, so bring a light jacket. Bring appropriate gear for hiking and camping and various sorts of weather. Hmmm...I would bring the major things with me, but you can get shmpoo or deodorant...

    bring a good set of hiking boots. There is plenty to see off the road way. Camera with plenty of film. My cousin shot a roll a day when the sun was out. I like to pack a telephoto lens (about 500mm) with a tri-pod for the long distance shots. You will see plenty of wild life (goats, elk, and mule deer). Watch closelly and you may find a...
