Celebrate our Tribal Nations: Pow Wows and Events in Western Montana
Established as a state in 1889, Montana boasts sweeping plains, big blue skies, majestic mountains and an amazingly rich history. But Montana’s history didn’t begin with Lewis and Clark’s expedition of the West; it began thousands of years prior. The plains and mountains that make up Montana are rich with cultural heritage—a deep, colorful tapestry that weaves tradition, art, music, dance, storytelling, adventure, industry and leisure. This creates a place of awe-inspiring spirit and wonder.
Winter Road Trips and Scenic Drives in Western Montana
Road trips are often equated with summertime, or at least with the warmer months (and by warmer we mean no threat of snowy road conditions). But here’s the thing: we recreate outdoors all year here in Western Montana, so we’re always on the road driving from one ski hill, Nordic paradise or snowmobile trail to another, and we’re here to tell you this—the winter panoramas from the pavement here are pretty magical, and the stops along the way are, too.
