Wild Montana (Bozeman)

Hotels & Destinations

One of the biggest draws is that the city is only 90 miles from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park (nps.gov/yell). Several local touring companies also offer half, full and multiday trips to Yellowstone year-round. And as home of Montana State University, Bozeman is also proud of its vibrant downtown alive with hip music venues, world-class restaurants and thriving art galleries. The Yellowstone Conference Center at Big Sky totals 46,000 sq. ft. of meeting and function space.

If you plan to take your group down the mountain, Big Sky Ski Resort (bigskyresort.com) - Montana’s premier skiing destination - and Moonlight Basin (moonlightbasin.com) are just an hour away from town, encompassing more than 5,800 acres for some of the best skiing around.

Another not-to-be-missed attraction is the Museum of the Rockies (montana.edu), featuring one of the finest paleontology collections in the state. For a truly unique Montana experience, take your group on a guided excavation led by experts from the museum.
