Join us this May for the ultimate Waterfall sight-seeing experience. Glacier National Park, not only named for the Glaciers it showcases, but for the Glacial carved valleys and peaks left behind from these moving masses. The upper elevation snowpack lingers in these unique geological spheres and circs creating the perfect syncopation of natural performances. While the weather is getting warmer for our famously beautiful Summer season, the snow is melting and the Rivers rushing.
This is a unique and flourishing time of year to experience the area; it feels like it’s waking up for the first time and everything is fresh and dazzling. The Wildlife are active and hungry, allowing early visitors incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. Best of all, the Waterfalls are everywhere, cascading in their fullest magnitude. These sights won’t last all Summer. In fact, the majority of them dissipate to almost nothing before August is over.
When visiting us for Waterfall Week, you will get several daily itineraries detailed with maps, photos, access information and statistics on mileage and time. You get to choose what the day holds for you and where you go. From Roadside waterfalls to hiking a few miles, all the information you need is handed to you in a convenient itinerary for your leisure. You will also enjoy night’s stay in our beautiful Lodge or Cabins and will be outfitted with Breakfast and Lunch for your sight-seeing days! This is a special time of year that typically only the locals get to cherish, but this year, we’re sharing the secret with you! Join Us!

Glacier River School provides training in-river and rope rescue skills as well as boat handling training. The River Rescue is designed for private boaters. This is an excellent course if you want an introduction to river rescue. We work on developing the skills needed for river runners! This course is the best fit for people that run rivers and have some ability to read water. While we practice rescue techniques, the primary focus of this course is prevention of river issues by thinking and talking through river emergencies. The course has sections that focus on rope work, rafting, kayaking and paddleboarding.
Upon returning to the resort after your first day at class, check into one of our brand new lodge rooms and freshen up. When you're ready head over to the caboose, grab a draft beer or a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the mountains.
