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.

We loved riding the gondola! Ticket sales staff were helpful. We went to the top to get milkshakes but their machine was broken or in repair so we just decided to go back down and found milkshakes elsewhere. Other than that, it was very fun...More

They run some of the lifts in the summer season, but everything had shut down before we got there in October for Canadian Thanksgiving. But we had heard a lot about the amazing "Danny On Memorial Trail" and weren't disappointed. It's not particularly challenging, so...More

I came here with friends and relatives in 2010 and always like taking the ski lift to the top and wandering around. Well let me be truthful; they make a killer huckleberry milkshake up there. Anyway, it was a great day as we had come...More

If you don't enjoy large crowds and waiting in line, then keep this place to yourself. I'm almost scared to give this review, because it is an unfound jewel. Always something to do, very good restaurants, great skiing and beautiful scenery.
