Seasonal Adventures

With four distinct seasons, northwest Montana welcomes travelers to soak up summer, fall, winter and spring. During long summer days, visitors can enjoy local fruit stands and take a dip in Flathead Lake, while fall beckons foliage chasers with scenic drives, cooler temperatures and a quieter look at this place. Winter’s abundant snowfall brings outdoor lovers to the region with easy access to downhill skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Meanwhile, spring offers a peaceful look at Glacier National Park and the snow-covered peaks of the region.
