About Salish Kootenai College

Salish Kootenai College is located in the center of the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana. The campus is located east of Highway 93, opposite the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Office Complex in Pablo, Montana. The Flathead Reservation is surrounded on the east, west, and south by mountains. To the north is Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River. The beautiful Flathead River winds its way through the Reservation from north to south. Within the Reservation's boundaries are the National Bison Range in Moiese and the Ninepipe National Wildlife Refuge. Other places of interest in the nearby western Montana area are Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, the Lolo National Forest, and the Flathead National Forest.Many recreational areas are accessible both on and near the Reservation. Winter skiers are within a two-hour drive to these public ski areas: Snow Bowl, north of Missoula; Marshall Ski area, east of Missoula; Blacktail in Lakeside; and Big Mountain, at Whitefish. The winter months provide many opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice-fishing. Lake and stream fishing, camping, swimming, hiking, and rafting are enjoyed throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
