Poor planning and inadequate preparation leads to increased risks and dangers while hiking, horseback riding, rafting, and mountain biking. Being physically prepared is of prime importance. Consider bringing plenty of warm clothing that can be layered. Remember wild game animals live here. Be mindful of extreme changes in temperature and weather conditions. High altitudes and rugged terrain presents its own challenges. Animals including domestic horses and mules, and wild animals can be unpredictable and dangerous to hikers, horseback riders, rafters, or mountain bike riders; all beyond the control of the outfitter.
Please adhere to specific direction from Blackfeet Outfitters. Our outfitter and guides are trained to identify dangerous conditions.

Because the weather is ever-changing, be prepared for all kinds of weather. It is important to bring rain gear and layers of warm clothing including jackets, warm hats, broad brimmed hat, and gloves. Temperatures can range from the 30’s to 60’s in early spring and late fall, and range from the 60’s to 90’s in the summer.
Bring polarized sunglasses, sun screen, lip balm, waders, and wading boots. In the heat of the summer, shorts are fine. Our best advice is to be prepared for all kinds of weather. Bring a camera to capture those great memories of catching a giant Rainbow or Brown trout!
