The winters here are mostly mild, compared to what most people that don't live here think. It ranges in the 20's and 30's. Usually there is one week of artic air that pushes in for a few days of below zero. I am a big skier and live for the winters here. Please visit my website for listings in our area.

First off it is beautiful in the Whitefish area, however it gets colder then a witch's tit in the winter.
If you can find work and you love the outdoors you SHOULD move to the area!
But lets be honest the winters last more like 5 months and western Montana just had the first nice HOT weekend of the summer last weekend because this winter lasted near 6 months. ( This was a record snowfall year so keep that in mind) .
Make sure you talk to local people and not just your realtor before you decide to make the move.
There are lots of things to think about when moving to a new state!!!

Hi Doug,
Well, first of all, it's BEAUTIFUL here in the winter time and all year round for that matter. Winters tend to be kind of long but there are tons of winter activities and events to keep one from getting cabin fever. Also, the humidity is very low here so it doesn't seem as cold. We had near record snowfall this last winter so it makes for some spectacular runoff in the rivers and streams. If you've never been to the Flathead Valley, you should plan a trip any time of year. I feel so lucky to live in a place that so many people want to come vacation in.

Not sure what your winters are like, but our avg. winter temp is 29 degrees. Relatively low humidity too. They're last around 4-5 months, but if you're into winter sports it goes by very quickly.

In reference to the DOT, not sure. I would give the Kalispell office a call next week. Look me up if you ever plan a visit!

Thanks & Tight Lines,
John Middleton
