Black Hills in March

What’s the weather like in the Black Hills in March?

While the average high is around 40 degrees, it’s a big improvement over the previous winter months. Actually, our March feels pretty sunny and you’ll want to wear sunscreen if you’ll be outdoors, especially because of the snow glare if there’s moisture on the ground. However, keep in mind, there’s also still a chance of heavy snow and even blizzards. That’s why you’ll still want to dress in layers and pack a heavy coat and boots, just in case.

Does it snow in the Black Hills in March?

Typically, it will keep snowing off and on throughout the month. However, if it doesn’t, Terry Peak will also continue to produce snow if needed for good skiing. On that note, Deadwood and Lead are always a bit wetter than the southern hills.
