The Seasons -


Cross Country Skiing

A winter wonderland best describes our area. Cross Country Skiing, Down Hill Skiing, Snowmobiling, Dog Sledding, and more. In Whitefish we celebrate "Winter Carnival" and visitors can enjoy the holidays in style, with our "Christmas Stroll" through downtown Whitefish, complete with horse drawn sleigh rides and hot cider from the local merchants.

Early spring provides some spectacular skiing on The Big Mountain and the other area resorts. Late spring, also known as "Break Up" marks the return of the birds, new leaves, and plant growth. The rivers rise from the mountain run off and this is a great time for Kayaking, White Water Rafting, Fishing, & Golf. In Whitefish we celebrate "Stumptown Days" and the return of spring with the planting of flowers and the cleaning of the "Fish".

Drive in and hike or bike Glacier National Park, usually open at this time up to "The Loop". We've provided the "Going to the Sun" road conditions on our Glacier Park Page.

Summer bring a wealth of outdoor activities. The "Going to the Sun" road in Glacier National Park is now completely open and the weather is perfect for camping, hiking, fishing, or just about anything you could think of doing outside. How about a few rounds of Golf? The days are long and the sun sets at about 10:30pm. The night sky fills with stars and gives new meaning to "Big Sky Country".

Fall brings the changing of the leaves and cooler temperatures. There is snow and frost in the higher elevations which makes for some truly stunning scenery. There is still plenty of golf to be played, and in Whitefish we're gearing up for Halloween which we celebrate with great style.
