The resort sees an average of 300 inches of snow on its 3,000 acres, and is as well known for a pleasant lack of lift lines as for its consistently good snow conditions. When the snow melts, Whitefish Mountain Resort becomes home to thrilling zip lines and an alpine slide, world-class downhill and cross-country mountain biking, and the unique Walk in the Treetops, in addition to spectacular hiking, water sports, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, Glacier National Park, and more available in the greater Whitefish area. It is the perfect base camp for a summer visit to Montana’s majestic Flathead Valley. « less

I have skied many times at the Whitefish resort, which was formerly called "Big Mountain". I assumed someone changed the name because people were confusing the area with Big Sky, which is in another part of the state. Big Mountain is rarely crowded and has many fine trails. The mountain gets a lot of fog, and at times visibility is... More

So much to do in the off season. Ziplining (expensive but so worth it), alpine slide, aerial obstacle course (awesome price and so worth it), the bar in the lodge was so inviting and the people are so friendly! You can get action pics on DVD too! Highly recommended!

I took the 7 line zipline tour and what great fun. The guides were awesome and very concerned that everyone had a great time - safely. We were shown a short film, given verbal instructions and a demonstration on how to handle the trolley - all with humor. And a discussion about safety. All very professional and again, awesome guides.... More

We have typically visited Whitefish Mountain to ski and have always noticed the ropes course in the trees and thought it would be great to come back in the summer to try it out. We finally did that this summer and loved it. My daughter (aged 11) and I cruised through the beginner through intermediate courses and were shrieking (in... More

Drove to the mountain for a hike while waiting to check into our inn. Got a great hike on the Danny On trail. Good views, beautiful wildflowers. Made me want to come back to ski! Hike can be as hard or as easy as you'd like. Very manageable. Or, if going up is a problem, take the gondola up and... More

Excellent value! I'd recommend the aerial adventures over the zipline tour. The suspended bridges, climbing and ropes had more to them and you could spend as much time as you wanted.

The resort is beautiful with lots to do. We took the 7 zip with Lisa and Tess as guides. They were great. Do not be surprised, however, there is some hiking between each zip run and you have to carry your "trolley." Also rode the ski lift to the top of the mountain for great views. Food and snacks available... More

After visiting the shops in Whitefish, we went to this resort. Took the Gondola up to the mountain, nice views. They have a restaurant and gift shop, we only bought drinks there. We then went on a hike on one of their trails (we were carrying our bear spray), very nice hike, great scenery and fresh mountain air.

Excellent moderate hike down the mountain even with young children. Quick cable car up the slopes, interesting nature discovery center in the summit and great 5 mile hike down.

Went as part of a New Years Ski trip, but I don't downhill ski. There was some light hiking/walking around the mountain, with beautiful scenery as well as alternate snow sports on the mountain (cross country skiing and snow-mobiling). A good trip even for none skiers, the on mountain spa was good, but booking ahead is suggested.
