Winter Festivals

Night Of Lights in December and Cabin Fever Days in February are two winter festivals that bring out locals and draw in visitors for holiday fun and mid-winter revelry.

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park attracts outdoor winter sport enthusiasts to the deep pure Montana snow for snowshoeing and cross country skiing in winter’s quiet.

Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding

Family-friendly skiing awaits you in the Flathead Valley and Columbia Falls is a convenient HQ for your upcoming ski adventure.

Sleigh Rides

Sit back and relax in a horse drawn sleigh.  With the snow falling and your loved ones near, there is no better way to enjoy the winter season!


In the wintertime, Columbia Falls is the gateway to vast snowmobiling trails in Montana’s Flathead Valley. The mountains are high and the powder is deep.
