If affordability and minimal crowds top your list of vacation “must haves,” then a vacation Whitefish ski resort is a no-brainer. Budget hotels and condos may dominate the Whitefish lodging options, but that doesn't mean Whitefish isn’t bursting with top-notch experiences and warm service. For example, Whitefish’s lack of crowds, which pervade Colorado, Utah and California ski resorts, give skiers and boarders the feeling like they have their own private mountain at this Montana ski area. Whitefish has a feeling of exclusivity—like it’s your own hidden treasure that you don’t want anyone else to ever discover. Plus, on a clear day, there’s no better place to take photos. The resort’s notorious snow ghosts—pine trees coated in fog and ice that resemble eerie figures—provide interesting photo opportunities that are unique to Whitefish.

Ski Whitefish Mountain Resort

Few resorts can offer so much to every skier and boarder. Beginners have nearly the entire lower, looker’s left-hand side of the mountain. Whitefish also offers beginners backside access. Newbies can explore the Northside zone via Caribou trail, the lone green run in that area. And with Whitefish’s nominal crowds, first-time skiers can feel comfortable learning a new skill without worrying about passersby. Intermediates can access the entire mountain—the Frontside, Northside and Hellroaring Basin—providing them with nearly 1,500 acres to explore.  Freestyle skiers and snowboarders have two terrain parks to choose from between Chair 3, or Tenderfoot, and Heaven’s T-Bar.

Whitefish skiing offers experts incredible access as well, via all three zones: Frontside, Northside and Hellroaring Basin. Experts get to experience all of the terrain on the two backside areas, from the sustained glades in Northside’s Window Pane and the steep pitch on Bighorn. Those in search of extreme terrain will be pleased with Hellroaring Basin’s offering, especially Picture Chutes.

Powder and clouds

We had three days of new powder snow however the top of the mountain was socked in by the snow clouds making navigation a bit iffy. Once the sun broke through the place was spectacular. This is a local's mountain as much as destination resort. Lots of steep and deep terrain for the advanced skier however tree wells are a real danger at Whitefish due to the sometimes poor visibility and deep snow. Ski with a buddy and have some avalanche training if you are going into the deep. Plenty of nice green and blue terrain for the family and there are blue runs off the top of the peak. I'll note that I write this in early April and Whitefish is still getting snow.

Our condo was older but fit the 6 of us comfortably. Cooking gear was adequate and all the appliances were in working order. Skiing to and from the condo was convenient.

I can't rate the nightlife. We ski all day and really aren't into night life. However the town of Whitefish is delightful. There is a free shuttle and a donations based taxi system. Of course Glacier National Park is right next door for a day off from skiing.

We'd happily go back.
