WHERE YOU'LL LIVE, WORK AND PLAY:

Live in the center of adventure.

Helena is the capital of Montana and centrally located near the continental divide and at the halfway point between two of America's premiere national parks: Yellowstone and Glacier.

The city's history lies in the search for gold in the west. Prospectors descended on Last Chance Gulch in the mid-1800 and struck gold transforming a small camp into a frontier town.

You will find history all across the city. Tour the quiet mansion district's leafed streets in the summer, walk the beautiful campus of Carroll College or stop the stately Capitol building to visit the summer farmer's market.

If you want to stretch your legs a bit hop on your mountain bike after work and hit one Mount Helena's many trails. The Mount Helena city park encompasses an entire mountain and is just minutes from the television station and downtown.

Helena is surrounded by the Lewis and Clark National Forest. The forest is home to some of the best hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities in the state. Blue ribbon trout fisheries that include the mighty Missouri River and the Little Blackfoot are less than an hour's drive from downtown.

In the winter there are ample trails for cross-country or downhill skiing at Great Divide, which is famous for being the first Montana ski hill to open and the last to close each season.
