Attraction details
Owner description: Whitefish Mountain Resort, in northwest Montana, is noted for its laid-back vibe, world-class skiing, and unbeatable value. 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.

“I'm Biased”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

I am a ski instructor at Big Mountain (also a native Montanan) so might be biased. I don't think so. The people who work here contribute to a constant positive attitude. The views (when we don't have fog) are some of the best in the world. Everyone who loves to ski needs to visit us. Your kids will get fantastic attention/lessons - and so will you.

This was a great place for those starting out (our kids) and the experienced skiiers in our party. Lots of variety of runs.

“Great spring skiing and AMAZING views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We visited Whitefish Mountain for the first time during Spring Break this year. We absolutely loved it and can't wait to return! We are a family of 5, from Montana, all intermediate and above skiiers. The terrain and the mountain are incredible, and the views from the summit are incomparable. We got lucky and had 3 clear days in a row, and skiing down the long groomed runs, looking at Glacier National Park and Flathead Valley was just amazing. Loved it!

“The views are fabulous, I hear.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We were really hoping for at least one bluebird day or maybe an inversion. But instead, we got 6 days of "limited visibility." They like to say visibility is over-rated at WMR. It's the only negative thing about Whitefish in my opinion. The snow, the runs, the staff, everything else was fabulous. It's nice not to have to acclimate to an altitude too. I would highly recommend giving Whitefish Mountain Resort a try.

“No place better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We love the mountain---lots of ski trails, no lift lines, and very friendly service. We used to ski a different resort every year, until we found Whitefish. Love it! Our kids/grandkids were here this winter to ski/snowboard with us and they love it as much as we do.
