Flathead Valley

The Flathead Valley lies just west of the Continental Divide in northwest Montana.  Here you’ll find the gateway to Glacier National Park and the home of both Whitefish Mountain Resort and Blacktail Ski Area.

Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, lies at the center of the valley surrounded by dozens of orchards and quaint little towns.

At the north end of Flathead Lake lies Bigfork where summer months are packed with the arts – street festivals and the Bigfork Playhouse provide endless entertainment with something for everyone to enjoy.

Columbia Falls is the known as the “Gateway to Glacier National Park” and sits on the Flathead River, the perfect place for a day on a raft fishing and picnicking with family.

Kalispell is centrally located with plenty to do from window shopping downtown to floating peacefully over town in a hot air balloon.

In Whitefish one can enjoy shopping and fine dining after a day on the slopes. Located at the base of Whitefish Mountain Resort and 30 minutes from Glacier National Park, it is a hot spot for all seasons.

Typical winter temperatures are in the 20s and 30s.  Summer temperatures range from the 70s to low 90s.
