Whitefish Mountain Resort is on Big Mountain in the Flathead National Forest of northwest Montana. Whitefish is Montana’s original Big Mountain skiing (the ski area dates back to 1947), redubbed Whitefish Mountain Resort in 2007. We love Whitefish for the 3,000 acres of skiing off all sides of the spectacular 6,817' summit of Big Mountain, and the cool Wild West ski town 8-miles down the mountain road, at the edge of Glacier National Park and the largest fresh water lake in the west – Flathead Lake.

Amazing resort. Very expensive but an amazing experience in world class resort. The snow is amazing and best in the world but very expensive accommodation and food. It is also quite crowded as it is very popular but there are ways around it like specific days and times to go... More

It is so uncrowded and so large that there is fresh powder to be found days after a storm.
