Whitefish Mountain Resort, Whitefish
(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
The handful of chairlifts at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Flathead National Forest take visitors to the slopes and provide great views. The mountain has three faces, each with its own terrain, from smooth and easy to tree-covered and challenging. Hell Roaring Basin hosts snowboarders and daredevils on its soft snow. Hellfire is the longest trail in the park at 5.3 km (3.3 mi). Visitors can try themed ski tours, such as night skiing or moonlight skiing and dining. The list of activities in summer is also long, and includes a Summer Nature Center, hiking, and mountain biking.

  • We only rode the ski lift here - did not stay at the resort. The ski lift was fine but the staff who helped you get on and off the rides were very unfriendly. You could tell they hated their jobs. The...  more »
  • I have done the aerial adventure three times, it is so much fun. It's a bit pricey if you don't get a group rate, but very worth it. Excellent for kids and adults. It's very safe so kids can go on the...  more »

  • If your looking for adventure this summer or fall I would highly recommend the zip lining at Whitefish Mountain. I'm scared of heights but still went and it was amazing. It cost $70 and you get to go down 7 zip lines. It takes several hours to complete and does require a bit of hiking so wear comfortable shows. Two guides are with you to make sure your safe. We had Jake and Brent and they were awesome guys. Bring your sunglasses and if you have access to a GoPro camera I would highly recommend filming your ride. Awesome place.
  • Big Mountain is the best. I appreciate the many improvements they've made over the many decades I've been coming here, but I don't appreciate the concomitant increase in price and pretension. "Big Mountain" suits me much better than "Whitefish Mountain Resort". Also, I hate that they charge for a lift ticket down after you've hiked up. $8! You're killing me, Smalls. Anyway, despite its flaws, I love Big Mountain.
  • What a fun mountain to play on. When you have the scenery it's spectacular, when you don't it's just plumb fun.
  • Good terrain. Great employees. Snobby patrons. But I'm such a swell guy and expect the same. LOL
  • Rated #11 nationally this year (2016). Great terrain for all levels, fantastic snow and zero lift lines even in the busiest times make this place one of the all time best areas in the country.
