Paws Up takes down its well-appointed tent cabins for the winter, but the 37,000-acre ranch’s family-friendly timber homes can accommodate up to eight guests. Visitors start winter mornings with slabs of bacon, eggs, and homemade coffee cake. Hard-core fly fishers can don waders and cast in the Blackfoot River, while wannabe Olympians can test their cross-country skiing and target- shooting skills on the biathlon course. For something more traditional, Paws Up offers hour-long horseback rides and old-fashioned horse-drawn sled trips. History geeks shouldn’t miss the snowmobile tour through Garnet, Montana’s best-preserved ghost town. From $753 per person, meals included.
