Living in Bitterroot Valley
We are nestled between the Sapphire mountain range to our east and the Bitterroot mountain range to our west bisected by the Bitterroot River which runs the length of the valley. This natural setting creates a moderate year round climate that has earned us the reputation as the “Banana Belt of Montana”.
The Bitterroot Valley offers unsurpassed beauty all along our 96-mile stretch from north to south. Our rich cultural and historical heritage is only equal to our worldwide reputation for hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and rafting, skiing and a wide variety of other wonderful outdoor activities. We offer our visitors a valley full of western-style adventure and Montana hospitality.
