Whitefish is Montana's four season resort paradise. Whitefish boasts all of the things that you could possibly want in a rocky mountain resort town. A world-class 3,000-plus acre ski resort (Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort), a 3,315 acre lake (Whitefish Lake), a 36-hole golf course (Whitefish Golf Club), a shopping mall, a quaint old-town shopping district, delicious restaurants, lively clubs and bars, a theatrical playhouse, an eclectic mix of art galleries and studios and so much more!
Whitefish in the wintertime is all about the ski hill. Whitefish Mountain Resort provides 94 marked trails with massive amounts of bowl and tree skiing available. With more than 2,300 feet of vertical drop, 3,000+ acres of terrain and 300 inches of snowfall annually, the Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort on Big Mountain has more than enough opportunity and excitement to keep even the most avid skier satisfied throughout the entire season. The resort is served by 3 high-speed quads, 2 quad chair lifts, 5 triple chairs, 1 magic carpet conveyor and 2 T-bars.
The peaks of Glacier Park provide a stunning, jaw-dropping panoramic backdrop to the ski resort, and the endless views looking down the impressive Flathead Valley at dusk with etch themselves into your memory for an eternity. Nothing can compare to a cruise down Inspiration run on a clear day... you will believe that you have died and gone to heaven.
Whitefish has grown to become as popular a destination during the summer as it is in the winter time. Where else can you take zip-line flights for more than a mile at heights in excess of 300 feet off the ground, water-ski on a placid mountain lake, play a round of golf, practice your turns on an olympic-sized ice rink, enjoy a delicious meal from a 5-star quality restaurant, and catch a live Broadway play all in the span of one day? Whitefish truly has it all.
During the summer months the community comes together each week for the Whitefish Farmers Market, with a vast array of locally-made food and baked goods, locally grown fruits and vegetables, handmade crafts, and live music to enjoy, the Whitefish Farmers Market is always a good time. Whitefish also hosts a variety of arts and crafts fairs, outdoor concerts and various other highlights throughout the summer.
