Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort

Lifelong patrons know this spectacular destination as the Big Mountain Ski Resort, but the 2007 name change hasn’t altered a bit of its allure. 

Situated in the Flathead National Forest of Montana — and just 19 miles from Glacier National Park — Whitefish Mountain Resort has blossomed into a first-class getaway spot that offers some of the best ski vacation packages in the area. Explore the 3,000 acres of skiable terrain. Take advantage of the 300 inches of powdery snow that falls each season. Race down the gorgeous groomers, or check out the Whitefish snowboarding opportunities at the epic bowls. When you book lift tickets and ski rentals at Whitefish Mountain, a world of winter delights is waiting to make you swoon.

Plus, if you’re new to the sport, this is the place for you. Though Whitefish ski packages give you access to a fair share of expert terrain, the real beauty lies in its beginner, intermediate, and ski school options. Advanced skiers who haven’t quite reached that would-be pro level will also have a blast; focus your tickets and rentals on the famous Hell Roaring for the resort’s tightest tree runs and top vertical chutes. Night skiing and heli skiing are equally great opportunities for travelers seeking that extra bit of adventure. 

One of the most unique things about Whitefish, Montana skiing, however, is the region’s weather. Big Mountain is known for its fog and snow ghosts, and both of these can reduce visibility on the trails. Take note of the fluctuations when you’re planning your ski vacations; you might want to pass on a few of the more challenging runs, if the fog gets too heavy. 

Of course, there’s plenty beyond the slopes to keep you entertained in this MT treasure. The town itself is known for its laid-back attitude, and it balances an old-school resort vibe with a spate of trendy amenities. What’s more, it’s extremely affordable; you can easily track down deals and discount prices on accommodations and ski tours allowing you bask in the beauty of this unforgettable place. Welcome to paradise.
