During winter, rocky mountain bighorn sheep migrate to lower elevation meadows near rugged, steep cliffs. Since they can't move though deep snow, bighorns prefer drier slopes where annual snowfall is less than five feet a year. One of the bighorns favorite wintering grounds are the Absaroka Mountains along the North Fork of the Shoshone River in Wyoming, where this ram was observed.
