Feature Colorway--Chinook

Mountain Colors Chinook Colorway

Chinook winds blow on the eastern slopes of the Rockies during the coldest months of the winter.  They bring warm air and a welcome relief to the sub-zero temperatures.  The temperature can change over 30 degrees in a few hours.  These are very dry winds so humidity drops, snow and ice melt, and people feel "better".  Most people welcome a chinook wind.

Our Chinook colorway helps celebrate the chinook winds of Montana.
