Get Ready for Fall!

It’s been a fun and busy summer for us at Glacier Raft Company/Glacier Outdoor Center.  And there’s still plenty of summer fun to be had up here.  As the tourist crowds start to dwindle, it’s prime time to come join us for whitewater and fishing adventures before sending those kids back to school.

And, it’s a great time to start thinking about late summer and fall fly fishing.  This area sees some pretty impressive trout action in the late season.  We’ll continue to fish the North Fork and Middle Fork of the Flathead into October with success.

In September, we see the biggest transformation of the seasons as summer turns into fall.  The nights get a little colder while the days stay warm and enjoyable.  (For the most part.)  The leaves start getting crazy with colors and at higher elevations snow begins to offer a hint at what we’re in for in the coming months.  Many locals say September in Montana is the best month of the year.

Also, right about now we start having people book our cabins for winter getaways.  We stay busy in the winter with our 15k Nordic ski track, and with our guided snowshoe trips inside Glacier National Park.  We have a full-service gear shop and ski/snowshoe rental shop that is open for winter enthusiasts.  If you are a summertime guest, we’d love to have you back in the wintertime too.  You’ll see that it’s an equally spectacular place with snow on the ground, but a very different experience.  You’ll see a lot of wildlife and stunning views, and the peace and quiet is therapeutic.

Keep in mind, we do have shoulder season and low season rates, as well as many special deals for winter guests.

So, enjoy this home stretch of summer–and we’ll see you back here in glorious September, and in the peaceful wintertime.
