Flathead Mountains

Flathead Mountains

Photo by Chris Henn

Montana, Big Sky country, is also a big mountain state. The Flathead Mountains lie just west of the Rocky Mountain Front and the Continental Divide, providing a dramatic backdrop for these residents. Here, the mountain range, along with Flathead Lake, is responsible for moderating Montana's harsh climate for the towns of Whitefish, Columbia Falls and Kalispell.
Flathead Indian Reservation, home to more than 5,000 residents, covers 1.2 million gorgeous acres, lying in the broad Mission Valley between Flathead's stunning Sailfish Range and Mission Mountains.
