The Ski Resort

Whitefish Mountain has it all: terrific skiing and snowboarding, great dining facilities, slopeside lodging and fantastic off-slope activities! The resort offers more than 1200 hectares of skiable terrain. In fact, it truly is a huge winter playground! More than half of the trails are for advanced and expert skiers and riders. Try a backcountry snow cat adventure and carve fresh powder snow!  However, Whitefish Mountain is huge and so it also offers plenty of room for beginners and intermediates. Take your skiing and riding to the next level and take some lessons at the Ski/Ride School. Experienced instructors will help you to master the powder, to take your first ride with the lift or will teach you a new trick in the park depending on your needs.

Whitefish Mountain has also a lot to offer aside from the slopes: Take a dog sledding tour, have dinner on a sleigh ride or visit one of the resort´s fantastic restaurants. Families love Whitefish Mountain! Here children can have a real fun holiday in the snow. Whitefish has a special Kids Center located in the Base Lodge that includes daycare facilities as well as indoor and outdoor play areas.
