GARDINER - Anyone who lives and works in Montana will tell you, winter can be a difficult time of year. One Montana town is trying to increase business during the off-season.
The town of Gardiner, located at the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park, gets the majority of its business during the summer months, peaking in July. Once the park closes for the winter, many hotel, motels and shops close until the park reopens in the spring.
Gardiner business leaders and Chamber of Commerce officials want to change this.
According to Daniel Bierschwale, Gardiner Chamber of Commerce Board President, "We're actually in the process of starting to market the winter season here in Gardiner and welcoming visitors to come down to Gardiner to enjoy the slow time of the year here."
