Glacier Country Weather Guide

Montana’s four distinct seasons offer weather that could—maybe—be referred to as a bit dramatic. In the best way possible, of course. Montana's Glacier Country, and our regional community anchors of Kalispell, Missoula and Whitefish, experiences diverse weather conditions ranging from winter snowfalls of 300+ inches (in the mountains) to long summer days, often followed by beautiful and mild autumns, complete with vibrant hues of yellow and gold.

There's this place where you can take a morning hike to view the breathtaking autumn hues, pick apples from a local orchard and relax with a season ale or crisp hard cider, all in one day.
