Community Information:

Discover why Kalispell has been named 'The Best Mountain Town in America' by Mountain Sports and Living magazine. Situated in the heart of the magnificent Rocky Mountains' Flathead Valley about an hour south of the Canadian border, Kalispell offers immediate access to Big Mountain, Glacier National Park (www.glacierparkphotos.com), Flathead National Forest and Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Residents enjoy breathtaking vistas with pristine mountain lakes, wilderness areas and blue ribbon trout streams, world-class hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, and skiing.

The Flathead's climate is akin to Camelot. For its elevation (2,959 feet) and latitude (near the 49th parallel), 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.

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.

Kalispell's infinite vistas with 360 degree views of 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.
