Tiny Flathead Valley Brochure

The Great Northern often promoted skiing at Big Mountain near Whitefish, but as far as I know this is the only brochure it ever issued for the Flathead Valley. Flathead Lake is a popular tourist destination, and important enough to the Great Northern that Ralph Budd once asked historians to figure out who was the first white man to have seen it (they decided it was David Thompson).

Three of the ten color photos in this brochure feature the lake; two are of the ski resort; and one shows Hungry Horse Dam, which the GN considered to be a tourist destination in its own right. Other photos show horseback riding, farming, and logging.
