Backpacker's Ball | Whitefish, Montana

Celebrate Glacier’s Big Night Out
The Backpacker’s Ball is an elegant evening in a spectacular setting – but leave your heels at home – this party welcomes your dusty hiking boots for the most magnificent celebration of the year for Glacier National Park.

Join us at the beautiful Big Mountain Ranch located near Whitefish with stunning views of Montana skyline. Bring your appetite to feast on the locally sourced menu and wonderful wine and beer selections.

Get swept up in the excitement of our Live and Silent Auctions, where curated collections of one-of-a-kind items and unique experiences and adventures will be found.

Wrap up the evening dancing to the live band as the sun sets and the stars begin to twinkle.

The Backpacker’s Ball is Glacier National Park Conservancy's signature event to support vital programs and projects in Glacier National Park, through your generous support.

Your help makes it happen. Your purchase of tickets to the Backpacker’s Ball will directly fund park education, preservation, and research programs.

If your schedule doesn’t permit you to join us this year, you may make a donation directly to the Glacier Conservancy and put your money to work right away.

Limited seating is available and this event sells out every year. Tickets are $150, are non-refundable but are transferable.

Please call Linda Clark at 406-892-3250 for more information.
