Before booking a trip to Whitefish for March 2013, I read reviews of Whitefish skiing from March 2012 in order to assess the quality of the skiing. There was a shortage of comments on the conditions of the hill so I wanted to offer some guidance to future travellers.
Our experience was very positive. We skiied two, consecutive days and had nothing but sun and temperatures above freezing. We only received a trace of snow on the first day and no fresh snow on the second day. The hills were well-groomed on the second day but in need of powder (some sections were slick). Over the course of the day, the snow on some hills became quick thick as the snow warmed up. Overall, the skiing at Whitefish were 'spring conditions" during our trip at the beginning of March.
I chatted with various skiers and learned that 80% of the ski days at Whitefish are foggy and can sometimes make for dangerous skiing. One woman was visiting from Texas over spring break with her family and said that over the 10 years they've been skiing at Whitefish in March, the weather has never let them down.
What surprised me most was that the hills were not very busy - short lift lines and sometimes no one on the hill but me. I highly recommend a trip to Whitefish in March.
