Location Summary
The Bitterroot Valley on the western Montana and Idaho border is a place of majesty, serenity, natural beauty and comfort in all four seasons. In spring, the meadows are alive with wildflowers and the air is fresh with new beginnings. In summer, the sun-filled days are perfect for horseback riding, fishing, scenic float trips, rafting and swimming. The mountains dressed for fall are a dazzling sight with bright blue skies and aspen shimmering in the warm sun, with crisp, cool evenings to enjoy a stroll under the stars. The often mild winters are exhilarating with the beautiful silence of fresh powder mornings, the breathtaking grandeur of Bitterroot Mountain panoramas and the excitement of Alpine and Nordic skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or horseback riding through unspoiled snow-covered wilderness.
