The Bitterroot Bouncers picked the right time to start a new business. In January, they opened up an indoor inflatable "bouncy house" facility in Hamilton. Using a former warehouse, they filled the large space with a variety of bounce houses that they usually rent out during the summer for birthday parties and special events. Then, with the winter of 2019 extending the snow season through March, they've watched the people discover the new place for families on those "bad weather" days. The facility includes two large rooms for birthday parties, and a coffee bar and couches for the adults... anything to get us through this unusually cold spring.

When you drive by their location on South 1st in Hamilton, you'll usually see plenty of cars in their lot. They are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and have special "Date Night Drop and Go" times on Fridays and Saturdays for those parents who need some time alone. And, yes, they still rent the bounce houses and other outdoor activities on those "good weather" days. Check their website for more.

You can go up and down. (Steve Fullerton, Townsquare Media)
