Welcome to our beautiful 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.
The history of Montana and specifically the Bitterroot Valley is brimming with a pioneer spirit of hardy men and women. Beginning with the earlier explorations of Lewis and Clark, rugged individuals mined for gold while the western rail system was being established to the ports of the Pacific coast. The beef industry was emerging on the land with luxuriant grass that for centuries supported the buffalo. Montana and the Bitterroot Valley experienced one of the greatest industrial developments the west has ever seen as the Kings of Copper were making their debut. William Andrews Clark and Marcus Daly made an impact on Montana that to this day still feels their influence. Diverse in her landscape, rich in natural resources, scenic beauty and dynamic in her history, she has been as changeable as her own weather. We invite you to further explore the history and heritage that is Montana and its beautiful Bitterroot Valley, truly the last best place and a Montana treasure.
