Winter at a Montana Guest Ranch

While we’re deep in the midst various projects, updates and planning for summer and fall (in case you missed it, we’re offering new packages this fall), we wanted to provide a behind-the-scenes look at what winter is like at Montana’s Flathead Lake Lodge.

Even though we only welcome guests during what we like to call Montana’s warm season, you’ll find staff, horses, elk and more throughout our property during the winter months. And since this is a time of year at the lodge that not many get to see, we wanted to provide you with a glimpse into what winter is like in and around Bigfork, Montana.

Take a look…

No amount of snow can keep us away. 
If you close your eyes, you can *almost* imagine the icicles being replaced with hanging baskets of flowers.
On snow days in Montana…we still come to work.
While winter started pretty mildly, the last few weeks have seen several inches of light power falling across the state.
Moon over Montana.
Our horses don’t mind a little cold and fresh snow.
While Flathead Lake gets most of its attention in the summer, there’s something truly beautiful about its calm and utter vastness during winter.

Views like this get us every single time.

We also often get asked if we’ve ever thought about opening during the winter season. Just for fun, we did a poll on our Instagram stories and the vast majority of you say YES, we should open for the winter.

The people have spoken. 😉

For now, if you’re looking to plan your summer trip to Montana, call us at 406-837-4391 or learn more about our offerings, including our brand-new fall packages, here.

See you when the snow melts,
