Where is Hamilton, Montana?
Hamilton is a small rural ranching/timber community which lies in the far western edge of Montana, 50 miles south of Missoula. It is located in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley between the Bitterroot and Sapphire mountain ranges. We are in close proximity (250 miles) of Glacier (to the north) and Yellowstone (to the southeast) National Parks. We highly recommend extending your stay to include enough time to tour both.

What is the nearest city to fly into?
Missoula International Airport. Transportation from the airport to Hamilton is the responsibility of each participant. Car rental or taxi is recommended, as there is no consistent public transit between Hamilton and Missoula to date.

Where will I stay?
There are a variety of hotel/motels in the Bitterroot Valley. A motel & Bed & Breakfast list is included in your registration packet. Participants are responsible for all meals.
For information about other accomodations you may contact the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce.

What is the weather like?
Hamilton's elevation is approximately 2,800 feet above sea level in a narrow valley between two mountain ranges. In the spring, daytime temperatures may rise to 50 - 70 degrees with nights anywhere from 32 - 40 degrees. Summer months may rise to the high 90's or more with the evenings around 40 - 50 degrees. Fall finds the afternoons somewhat cooler at about 70 - 80 degrees and the evenings returning to just above freezing levels again. The weather in the Bitterroot can change in an instant and it has been known to snow in June/July - so packing for all temperatures and layering is highly recommended.
