Big skies, amazing vistas and incredible experiences
For the members of the Foley Food and Wine Society who want wide open spaces, huge vistas or to unleash the cowboy inside, visit our Montana properties. Members enjoy endless summer activities including guided fly fishing on Rock Creek or the Clark Fork River, shooting sports, ATV tours, kayaking and white water rafting, hiking, biking and nature watching.
Members visiting in winter have access to hundreds of miles of snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing trails through county, state and national forests. Downhill skiers and snowboarders have their choice ranging from world-class resorts to quaint local ski hills, each offering incredible terrain and legendary Montana powder.
Society members and their guests will find an excellent retreat from the day’s activities at our luxury accommodations at Rock Creek Cattle Company or Whitefish Mountain Resort.
ABOUT THE STATE
Meet Montana: The name Montana comes from the Spanish word Montaña or “mountain.” It would appear to be an appropriate moniker as Montana contains 77 named ranges that are part of the Rocky Mountains. In addition to its formal name, Montana also has several nicknames, the most famous of which is “Big Sky Country".
While Montana is the fourth largest state in the U.S., it ranks 43rd in population. The economy is built around services, ranching, wheat farming, oil, coal mining, lumber and tourism.
Each year millions of tourists make the pilgrimage to many of Montana’s greatest natural assets, including Glacier National Park, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Yellowstone National Park, Lewis and Clark Caverns and the National Bison Range. Montana has ten National Forests and more than 20 National Wildlife Refuges.
The state has also become a haven for thousands of new residents and second-home owners who prize the solitude, beauty, and outdoor activities Montana offers.
Montana Style: Out here most introductions still start with a slight tip of the hat and a firm handshake. This casual formality will be your first of many meetings. You’ll soon discover that the Ranch will keep introducing herself to you day after day, year after year. Familiarity will come from knowing her history and tradition. A true connection is born from riding the land.
