Thanks for check out Great Divide!
While I grew up in Helena, I have meander through several states before ultimately laying down my family roots in Montana. I believe that many people don't understand or appreciate the beauty of Montana until they have spent significant time outside of the state. I am truly lucky to call Montana, and more specifically Great Divide Ski Area, my home.
I am excited to be heading up our summer operations at Great Divide, in particular weddings. Helping couples start their journey together brings joy to my world and I can't wait to start planning your wedding!
