Xanterra Stirs Up The Gateway To Glacier

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA FALLS -

Xanterra breathes some life into Columbia Falls.

The new park concessioner is working on building offices in the old Clark and Pamida buildings.

The laundry and warehouse facility has been open for about a month, sending out two trucks a day to stock things like food, wine, and linens.

Right now, they're working out of some temporary offices on Nucleus Avenue, but they should be able to move into their new digs in the fall.

Columbia Falls has also seen more red buses this year than usual since Xanterra parks and services them in a hangar at the airport instead of East Glacier. They're looking at some nearby properties to build a new place to keep the buses.

"We're just so excited to be here. It really is the gateway to Glacier and it is so convenient for us to be able to reach the park and our operations there," said Amy Dempster, Xanterra's marketing director.

Within the next three to five years, Dempster says all five lodges they run will get some pretty serious renovations.
