BITTERROOT MONTANA IS BIG SKY COUNTRY
The Bitterroot Valley is located in the southwest corner of the State of Montana. It borders the Largest Wilderness area in the lower 48 states. It is also located in the Banana Belt of Montana, known for having more moderate temperatures than other parts of the state.
Wildlife is very abundant here. Pine forests and meadows flourish. Numerous Mountain Streams flow from the high peaks, creating lush irrigated fields and pastures. The remaining water feeds into The Bitterroot River which flows through the center of the valley. This is country for those who love the outdoors! This sportsman’s paradise offers hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, skiing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling.
There are 3 ski areas from one end of the valley to the other, so no matter where you live, one is close by. Missoula is the “BIG CITY” in the area, located at the North end of the valley, for those needing a cup of Starbucks Coffee, a shopping spree at the mall or enrollment into college (University of Montana). Missoula also offers an International Airport and is about a 35 minute drive from the center of the valley.
There are 9 cities in The Bitterroot Valley. Starting from Missoula headed South is Lolo (9 miles), Florence (18 miles), Stevensville (26 miles), Victor (32 miles), Corvallis (41 miles), Hamilton (46 miles), Darby (63 miles), Connor (69 miles) and Sula (79 miles).
Bitterroot Valley offers something for everyone: Mountains, rivers, streams, wilderness views, and a new kind of lifestyle. Come out for a visit, and see what we mean. We will be happy to show you around. Call me at 406-529-1768.
