Nothing brings a group together better than a meeting in Montana's Flathead Valley. The valley lies next to the rugged grandeur of Glacier National Park along the western edge of several million acres of designated wilderness. Its centerpiece is Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. The area offers more than 3,000 guest beds, including five full-service hotels in the valley. For quiet retreats and small meetings, choose from resorts, historic lodges, and in-town properties. A multi-event complex welcomes equestrian events, trade shows, concerts, and special events. But no facility is so large that your meeting becomes just another meeting in a vast complex.

WINTER: With two ski areas, Flathead Valley winter recreation begins with alpine skiing and snowboarding. There are hundreds of miles of Nordic trails and more than 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Concert and theater seasons are in full swing and winter festivals dot the calendar.

SPRING: Snowmelt brings out wildflowers and golfers. Breathtaking golf courses from the south end of Flathead Lake to the foothills of Glacier National Park await spring groups after meeting at one of our full-service hotels or resorts.

SUMMER: The Flathead Valley comes alive in summer, with hiking, horseback riding, and more. Play golf until the sun sets late in the evening, or send your group on a team-building trip with a whitewater rafting adventure.

FALL: As the leaves change color, summer lingers in the mild days and cool evenings. Groups can enjoy fishing, more golf, and productive meetings at secluded, executive retreats.

ATTRACTIONS Chuckwagon dinners, barbecues, afternoons on the river, or an evening stargazing at Whitefish Mountain Resort on the Big Mountain. A Flathead Valley meeting can be as interesting and diverse as its surroundings. The wonders of Glacier National Park are less than an hour from every point in the valley. Flathead Lake offers a wealth of recreation opportunities,everything from quiet cruises to sailing, waterskiing, and parasailing. Fish the lake or countless rivers and streams. With more than 2,000 working artists in the valley, art is everywhere, from simple crafts and carvings to fine bronzes, and oil and watercolor paintings. Anchoring historic downtown Kalispell are the Hockaday Museum of Art, the Conrad Mansion, and The Museum at Central School.
