The picture-perfect ski town is a Montana staple. Who else does the ski chalet, with the roaring fireplace and everything, better? But here in Montana, where we’ve got world-famous Rocky Mountain resorts left and right, you don’t have to live at the base of the chairlift to have easy access to incredible skiing. In a recent feature story about the “next American ski towns,” POWDER magazine highlighted Kalispell as one of many growing hubs for skiers seeking something more: a diverse economy, culture, and community. If you’re a skier, you should consider Kalispell real estate for sale.
Flathead County is the second-fastest growing regional trade area in Montana, and Kalispell is at the center, geographically, and as the Flathead County seat. There’s a state-of-the-art hospital and quality community college, as well as a bustling downtown. There are good jobs, and good neighborhoods. Entrepreneurs gravitate here, and traditional industries are still going strong. Nearly 23,000 call Kalispell home, making it a great place to build community.
And see those mountains in the distance? They’re not so far. Downtown Kalispell is just 40 minutes from the base of Whitefish Mountain Resort. Hardly a compromise—that’s still an easy day trip to one of the best ski areas in the country. This year, Whitefish Mountain Resort was ranked as the 10th best resort in North America by SKI magazine readers, who noted that the resort excels in service, lodging, grooming, character, and kid-friendliness. On a sunny day, Whitefish boasts beautiful panoramic views into Canada and of Glacier National Park. Meanwhile, Blacktail, just a 50-minute drive away, looks across the beautiful, blue Flathead Lake. A smaller ski area, Blacktail has a quieter, slower-paced feel, which is perfect for a Kalispell family looking to get outside on a weekend.
