Welcome to Ronan, Montana
The Ronan Chamber of Commerce would like to
welcome you to the Mission Valley. Ronan
features some of the most spectacular scenery
anywhere, with the magnificent Mission Range
forming a backdrop to our community. There is
an "open arms" welcome awaiting you with
small town friendliness, yet an amazing
variety of services and goods available.
With all the natural attractions and year
'round recreation, the Mission Valley is truly
a vacationers dream - lake and stream fishing,
backpacking in the mountains, skiing, sailing,
the list is endless for things to see and
do. Sheltered by the Mission Mountain Range
of the Rockies, the climate is surprisingly
moderate year round. Commerce and industry are
headed by a strong agriculture and lumbering base.
The Flathead Indian Tribes are also a major employer.
Modern medical facilities include a newly
remodeled and expanded, well staffed hospital and
community-built extended care facility. Excellent
schools available from K-12, with the nearby Salish
Kootenai College providing additional courses and training.
Ronan is located just 12 miles south of Flathead Lake, the
largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi.
Continue on 50 miles north and you'll be in Kalispell,
then Whitefish and then the "Crown of the Continent",
the unspoiled Glacier National park with hundreds of
miles of hiking trails
Ronan is just 50 miles north of the second largest
city in the state, Missoula, home to the University
of Montana and all of the amenities of urban living.
The mountains, rivers and lake provide an abundance
of summer activitieslike hiking, river rafting,
boating, fishing, camping, horseback riding and
bike path trails. You will also find breathtaking
scenery from the Mission Valley Golf Course in
Ronan. Winter gives outdoor enthusiasts plenty
of opportunities from big game hunting in the fall,
to ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling
and down-hill skiing at one of four ski-resorts
within 90 miles of Ronan.
Ronan, with its breathtaking scenery and
progressive community is right in the middle
of it all and is truly a beautiful place
to visit and a wonderful place to live.
