Climate


We don't sell climate... it goes with the purchase of the land.


Montana, The Big Sky Country, has considerable variation in its geography and therefore its climate is equally varied. The state tends to be warm and dry during the summer months but the nights almost invariably are cool and pleasant. Average temperatures range from 84.5* F in July to 28* F in January. Montana's cold winters are frequently broken by warm, windy spells known as Chinook winds. The heaviest snowfall is from November to March and rainfall is generally light with most falling between May, June and July. Of notable interest is that the lilac blooms in the state usually signal the beginning of the vegetative growth season.

Government


A little kingdom I possess, where thoughts and feelings dwell; and very hard the task I find of governing it well.


Montana, the Treasure State, was admitted to the Union in 1889. The state legislature is made up of a Senate and a House and convenes only on odd numbered years and for 90-day periods. The second and current constitution enacted in 1972 placed more responsibility on the individual voter and made significant strides to protect Montana's environment. Montana was the first state to elect a female member of Congress – Jeannette Rankin – and one of the first states to give women voting rights.
