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.
The skiing was great. The snow plentiful, with fast lifts to get you up the mountain. The restaurants were delightful with better than the average resorts food. The lifties and locals were very friendly. It deserves the name Big Mountain.

A local brewery.
We were charmed by all the rail-related artifacts at this restaurant, and so we decided to have lunch there. It's a big space, with a bar area, restaurant area, and also dance floor when things get rolling. We ordered at the counter, and staff brought our meals to the table. The food is very good, the sandwich and burger were quite tasty. It's a popular spot for good reason.

We took a walk around downtown and stopped by the picturesque historic depot built in the Tudor style (1927, National Register of Historic Places). It has been carefully maintained and restored, and still welcomes visitors arriving by rail to this day. Inside there is a small museum (free, 10am-4pm daily except Sunday) and displays about the railroad and local history. I found the Hertz rental car office particularly charming; it is the oldest Hertz licensee in the US and has been operated by the Duff family for more than 60 years. Outside there are some displays of railroad rolling stock and The Bruck, a custom-built bus-truck combination that was used to transport passengers and their luggage between Whitefish and Kalispell. The weekend we visited, there was an arts and crafts show going on the the adjacent Depot Park which offered more to explore. I really enjoyed our stroll around the depot and town; there are paved trails that lead from here to the City Beach and also south along the banks of the Whitefish River.

I love this gallery/retail store. It's light and bright with a contemporary museum feel. The pottery is hand made by local artists as well as other items they sell. The prices are reasonable for a resort community. I bought usable pottery for my tiny home on wheels which are functional & look great. Highly recommend checking it out.

Sat at the bar. Ordered a flight. The bartender really knows beer and was as friendly as one would expect. The beer was good. My favorite was the Red IRA. Got a growler for my collection!

Most of the land on Whitefish Lake is in private ownership, so it's wonderful to have a public beach so close to town. There isn't copious amounts of parking, and there are residents living very close, and so it might be tight in the warm days of summer. But we were there in autumn, and had the beach to ourselves. The beach is very nice, and there is a good pier and boat launch. For families looking for something low cost to do, this is excellent! The State Park charges for parking, so free parking here is treat!

I chose this hike because of the reviews that I read on All Trails. The trail was well maintained & actually made a loop. We ventured beyond the loop & found the trail still in great condition & very easy to walk. The trail has hikers...equestrians..& mountain bike riders so you have to stay aware of your surroundings. Lots of trees & bushes too
