In addition to providing overviews of market trends in Kalispell and Bigfork MT, I also planned to do monthly reports of Lakeside, MT.

Per the calendar, my first winter in Montana is complete. Of course, we might still get winter weather. But the season has gone far enough so I can provide my input on what a Kalispell winter is like. Or can I? Apparently, the winter of 2019-2020 has been one of the mildest the Flathead Valley ha...
