About the Area
Kalispell is in the heart of the magnificent Rocky Mountains, poised in the northwest corner of Montana and about an hour south of the Canadian border. As Montana’s seventh largest city, it’s a progressive, thriving community; the very essence of Big Sky Country. A half-hour to the east lies the rugged grandeur of Glacier National Park. Fifteen minutes to the south is Flathead Lake, a glacial jewel, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, and one of the purest anywhere. Encompassing the valley is the Flathead National Forest with its 2.3 million acres of federally protected public land, home to abundant wildlife, including grizzly and black bears, moose, deer, elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep and wolves. At more than 5,000 square miles Flathead County’s 90,000 residents have plenty of elbow room. About as many people live within the three incorporated towns as outside of them. With a population of 22,000 Kalispell is the largest. It is within a 15-minute drive of the other two, Whitefish and Columbia Falls; and less than 30 minutes from Bigfork and Lakeside, two smaller but vibrant communities nestled on the east and west shores of Flathead Lake.
Kalispell enjoys a relatively mild climate: glorious summers with warm days and cool nights and little humidity; golden autumn days turning crisp by late October; winters made for skiing, snowboarding, snowcatting and ice fishing; and springs with daffodils dusting the valley while fresh snow dusts the surrounding peaks – an extraordinary season when you can ski and golf – in the same day! High mountains to the east and west protect us from harsh extremes. The valley’s many lakes and rivers also tend to moderate temperatures winter and summer. The weather ranges from moderately dry summers with typical daytime Fahrenheit temperatures in the 80s, Indian Summer days in the early fall, and moderately wet winters and spring. Daytime winter temperatures are in the 20s and 30s, with plenty of snow for winter recreating. While the Flathead Valley floor averages about 3,000 feet, the highest mountain peaks rise to more than 10,000 feet above sea level. As the elevation increases, so does precipitation: from 16 inches on the valley floor to 100 inches on the peaks. While ferocious storms can buffet the mountaintops, winds are usually gentle in the valley – although robust afternoon breezes are not uncommon, and occasional sudden gusty winds can blow on Flathead Lake.
Art is one of the main attractions the valley has to offer. The area attracts and supports more than 2,000 artists and craftspeople, whose work can be seen in studios, galleries and festivals. Theater, dance and live music enjoy enthusiastic audiences. From outdoor symphonies and concerts in the parks to intimate venues and clubs, the variety of entertainment choices is endless. Recreation opportunities are without limit. Two downhill ski areas are within an easy half-hour drive of Kalispell: Whitefish Mountain Resort to the north near Whitefish, and Blacktail to the south near Lakeside. Nine golf courses are scattered within 45 minutes of one another, including Kalispell’s 27-hole Buffalo Hill Golf Club, perched upon a natural local landmark where the town’s founder, Charles E. Conrad, once grazed his herd of buffalo. From fishing, boating and bicycling, to hiking, hunting and huckleberry picking – whatever your heart desires is within easy reach in Kalispell. Kalispell’s infinite vistas with 360 degree views of Glacier National Park, and the Whitefish, Swan and Mission ranges of the Rockies, its thriving economy, and exhilarating, growing community of friendly residents who take great pride in their home, are a few of the many reasons why the quality of life here is exceptional and why the Flathead’s unparalleled beauty is treasured by all who live here
