The list of things that Montanans are passionate about is a long one. Here in Montana, we don’t let a little thing like the weather stop us from doing what we want. If we want to have a Brew Fest in the winter, then let’s do it. If we want to pull skiers with horses, we are on it. If we want to put on a Half-Marathon, yep, we are good to go.
