Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana

Welcome to Whitefish

Since 1947 Whitefish Mountain Resort has welcomed skiers and riders seeking a mountain that is uncrowded, beautiful and affordable. Rising above the town of Whitefish, in beautiful northwest Montana, in the backyard of Glacier National Park (only 35 miles away), the resort charms its guests with a friendly fun-loving vibe, variety of terrain, and virtually no lift lines at an unbeatable value. Whitefish’s Big Mountain is the quintessential skier's mountain averaging more than 300 inches of snow annually on 3,000 acres of bowls, chutes, and glades on all aspects.

When the snow melts, Whitefish Mountain Resort becomes home to thrilling zip line tours, Montana’s only alpine slide, lift-accessed downhill and cross-country mountain biking, and the unique Walk in the Treetops. Since the 1950s visitors have enjoyed Scenic Lift Rides and hiking the mountain’s ski slopes in search of Huckleberries. It is the perfect base camp for a summer visit to Montana’s majestic Flathead Valley home to water sports, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, and of course Glacier National Park.
