Winter 2021 Is Still Hot In Montana

It’s easy to think that wintertime in Montana means that everything slows down – including ranch listings and sales. The opposite couldn’t be more true in 2021, based on what Western Ranch Brokers has seen thus far with the start of the new year.

Spurred by the impacts of COVID-19, Montana continues to be a hot market – even in the winter. Partner and Broker Jim Toth has been actively talking with clients as well as showing properties in the first two weeks of the year. Partners Bill Bryce and Caleb Campbell are also seeing an uptick in inquiries and transactions versus the same time last year.

Western Ranch Brokers has several properties that also provide exceptional year-round experiences, offering access to multiple ski areas and winter amenities.

The Rockin JN Ranch is an ideal Bitterroot Valley location for those who want to experience downhill or cross country skiing, snowmobiling and dog sledding. Located on 545 acres of rolling hills, mountain backdrops, ponds and a luxurious ranch house in prime elk and mule deer country, the Rockin JN Ranch offers access to Lost Trail Powder Mountain, the perfect place for powder ski days, and the East Fork of the Bitterroot River and the Big Hole River for countless fly fishing adventures.

For those who want to have a central location that sees less, everyday snow in the wintertime but plenty of access to winter experiences, the Lazy TP Ranch near Whitehall, Montana, is well situated. Downhill skiing at larger ski destinations such as Big Sky Resort, Bridger Bowl as well as the smaller ski areas including Great Divide, Maverick Mountain and Discovery Ski Area are all within a two-hour drive of the 10,906-acre ranch.

O’Brien Park Mountain Camp is a gem surrounded by the natural beauty of an immense landscape, set deep within the panoramic and idyllic Little Belt Mountains of central Montana. Historically a summer sheep camp, the 154± Forest Service inholding sits idle, ready for a new owner to grasp its endless recreational potential with family-friendly Showdown Mountain ski area located less than two miles away as well as Silver Crest Winter Recreation Area.

Although less importance is often put on the winter season, Western Ranch Brokers encourages anyone interested in selling, buying or exploring possibilities to not wait until the springtime. There are plenty of opportunities and the demand for ranch properties by Western Ranch Brokers’ clientele continues.
