Best time to visit Bozeman
For those who love winter, visit Bozeman between December and March, which is the prime time for skiing. Make sure to pack plenty of thermal clothing (since temperatures can drop below freezing) and be prepared to join other tourists who are enjoying an adventure outdoors.
The summer (June – August) brings more tourists, however, it doesn’t get too crowded. If you prefer more peace and quiet, visit Bozeman during late spring (May) and early autumn (September), when you can enjoy warm temperatures with cold nights (around 3°C). You may need to pack thermal clothing for these seasons as well, especially if you get accommodation close to the mountains (where the temperatures can also drop below freezing in spring and autumn).
