Nature seems to roll out the carpet for this event, with the awakening of spring flowers, revived green slopes of the Missoula valley, and the rivers coming to life from the winter snow melts. Showing off the beautiful displays that Montana does so well. Realize this is an outdoor event and as the saying goes “if you don’t like the weather what 5 minutes”. Montana is also know for its every changing temperatures, so bring layers so you are not distracted from all the celebration the day has to offer.
We at Gibson Mansion love to welcome out of town family and friends, pampering them with all our luxury amenities during their stay. Less than 2 miles from the campus this makes for a close and quiet get-away, so don’t delay in booking your room!
