3 College Freshman

Weather: Its Montana. It gets cold in the winter and there is snow. Great for winter sports. Spring and Summer weather is beautiful with lots of outdoor activities. Swimming, fishing hiking, river rafting.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I like the cold, so the winter doesn't bother me at all, and we aren't there for the summer heat

4 College Student

Weather: When it's below zero and windy the classrooms are always freezing and walking around campus is daunting. When it's warm and nice out its also freezing in the classrooms and it makes it hard to concentrate

2 College Freshman

Weather: The winter is awful. The winter lasts most of the school year but it is amazing in the summer!!

2 College Freshman

Weather: Too much snow and too cold! It is much harder to get to class.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Missoula not only has four distinct seasons, but sometimes students can experience all four in the course of one day. It's not uncommon to start the morning in a winter coat, shed layers throughout the day, and return home with an unexpected sunburn at the end of the day. Most students characterize the weather as bipolar, moody, and mercurial.

Winter remains the longest season and can last as long as October to April, so if you have Seasonal Affective Disorder or hate skiing or snowboarding, Missoula's weather may not be ideal. For some, the cold can be conducive to studying. Because Missoula exists in a valley, it does not have the typical blustery winds that most of Montana receives. Summer and fall in Missoula make the cold almost worth it. With no wind or humidity, the dry heat and mountain scenery would make even an LA native jealous.
