Chris Sidmore

Executive Director

Chris joined the team in the summer of 2023. He is from the Flathead Valley and is thankful to have the chance to serve his community through this role. Above all Chris is proud of being a dad of two children. He enjoys all the amazing Montana activities and is convinced that he knows where the best hidden waterfalls are.
