One of the most essential pieces of advice I can give anyone during the winter in Montana is to dress in layers. The colder it gets, the more layers you'll need. A base layer is critical. Its purpose is to keep you warm and your skin dry. The middle layer is meant to provide insulation. The outer layer will keep you dry and protect you from the elements like wind and water.

It's also important to make sure that your vehicle is running properly. Montana winters can be really hard on vehicles. Many people invest in an engine block heater. It keeps your engine warm, so it's easier to start during frigid temperatures. If you don't have a garage where you can park your vehicle, an engine block heater is a great choice.
