    Charlotte H
    Is Lodge at Whitefish Lake or Kandahar Lodge at Whitefish mountain a better location for a family traveling with a 5 yrs old. Our daughter will need to attend ski school, so we would prefer to be close to the school/chair lift area. Which would be a better choice for good location? thanks :)
