Spring 2016

Outside Bozeman Spring 2016
Spring is a schizophrenic season. We ski, we fish, we run, we bike, and we hike, hopefully all on the same day. It's a season of rebirth and revitalization, when we're inspired to plan big and make the most of every additional minute of sunlight. That's why our spring issue is full of big stories, like our investigation into an age-old conservation ethic. Or our profile of Wilderness's biggest advocate. Or our six pages of the season's best gear. So whatever your spring dreams are, our spring issue is sure to point you in the right direction.
