Mid-September is a great time to visit Big Sky, MT. While weather can sometimes be a bit unpredictable in September at any mountain town, typically weather is sunny and warm with a hint of chill in the air reminding us fall is around the corner.
Perks to a September visit in Big Sky are the hiking and biking trails feel less crowded, yet groomed and ridden to perfection after a summer of being packed down. Foliage may be in the prime for any leaf peepers hoping to catch those golden aspen trees. Streams and rivers are ready for the flyfishing enthusiast to enjoy. It is just about a perfect time to take advantage of the recreation in Montana.
Another perk of visiting Big Sky in mid-September is the lineup of events that are being held at an otherwise slower time of year. Taking place the weekend of Friday, September 13th is the Mountainfilm on Tour. The event will bring a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films that were curated from the Mountainfilm festival held ever Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado.
Kicking off the weekend on Thursday, September 12th is the featured concert, Dead Sky. The Arts council is pleased to present the concert taking place from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Big Sky Town Center. This concert will close out an epic summer of free music and concerts in Big Sky.
On Friday, September 13th, the Mountainfilm Tour will be held over three days giving attendees an opportunity to fully submerge, or pick and choose from the many showings of the tour. The weekend will explore themes connected to the mission of Mountainfilm: to use the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.
