Serving up handcrafted ice cream since 1995, Big Dipper Ice Cream has garnered national attention from an appearance on Good Morning America to being chosen as one of America's Best by Food and Wine Magazine, USA Today, Yahoo News and Budget Travel among others. Big Dipper can be found in Missoula, Helena and Billings, Montana as well as rolling around Missoula in our ice cream truck, "Coneboy". If you are visiting Glacier or Yellowstone National Park you will also find our other label Big Dipper Select at all Xanterra lodges and restaurants.
