The environment in Montana is subject to extreme weather changes and shouldn’t be underestimated.  Essential clothing and equipment you need to have on the mountain are:

For you and your family
  • Minimum of 3 layers of warm clothing (thermal, shirt, woollen jersey or polar fleece)
  • Waterproof and wind proof jacket and trousers
  • Hat and warm, waterproof gloves or mittens
  • Spare dry clothing, especially warm socks
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses
For your car
  • Chains that fit your car’s tires ( if not 4×4)
  • Bottled water
  • Snack food
  • Blankets
