About Us

The Crown of the Continent Discovery Center is owned by Pat Tabor and primarily operated by his daughter and son-in-law, Aubrie and Erik Loroña. The recent addition of this company to their group of Montana outdoor recreation companies fulfills a lifelong dream to be able to live and work year round in a mountain paradise. Every day, they thank God as they feel privileged to reside in the beautiful state of Montana.

Often described as a “new generation outfitter”, Pat is focused on providing top quality customer service for the guests of the Swan Group of Companies. Over the last several years, Pat has been consulting with the outdoor recreation industry based on his business acumen, personal vacation experience and first-hand operating knowledge of the industry. This collective experience has enabled him to identify the attributes of many of the finest outfitters and bring this knowledge to his own companies. This expertise, combined with his dedication to a collaborative business model and strong business acumen gained through almost three decades in the corporate world, makes Pat unique among Montana outfitters.
