Message From Our CEO

Welcome to  the TrailWest Bank website.  TrailWest Bank is a group of locally owned and operated community banks that strive to develop longstanding personal relationships with our customers.  Relationship banking is at our core and we take pride in consistently exceeding our customers’ expectations.  Further, our bankers live where they work and support their communities through financial assistance, donations, and volunteerism.

Our Lolo branch was the first location for TrailWest Bank, established in 1981 as a community bank servicing Lolo, Montana.  Over time, our bank grew to include 13 offices in four counties in Western Montana.  Today, TrailWest Bank has full service offices in Hamilton, Corvallis, Stevensville, Lolo, Missoula, Milltown, Frenchtown, Superior, Saint Regis, Kalispell, and Evergreen.  Also, we are excited to offer full service locations in Missoula soon.  We invite you to visit any of our convenient locations to see what we can do for you.

Our strategic plan is to remain locally owned and independent. We believe that our structure enables us to provide the gold standard in financial services including the highest level of quality service, competitive products, and value to our customers. Additionally, we are committed to exploring high-tech banking solutions and currently offer free online banking, phone banking, and mobile banking capabilities.  Our online banking includes personal and commercial online banking, ACH originations, e-mail alerts, bill pay, and much more.

Thank you for visiting the TrailWest Bank website and for considering us for your banking needs.
