March is the promise of Spring!

Wow! Did we get a lot of snow recently! We have had record levels all at one time, but should be on par for a good runoff when the cumulative amount melts. Rafting should be as fun as last year, fishing will need to wait, hiking will be muddy for a little while and the wildflowers will again be colorful and expansive. Let us know if you are coming for a visit, we have a special rate with our local Hilton Garden Inn and some vacation rentals options in multiple areas.

The Bozeman area has the strongest economy for a city with fewer than 50,000 people in the U.S., according to a new national report.

Each year, independent research firm POLICOM ranks areas for “economic strength” — the long-term tendency for a place to grow in size and quality. For a second year in a row, Bozeman topped the micropolitan list.
