2014 Spring/Summer Snow Report

Hey there Devoted Whitefish Fan!

You are reading the Snow Report and it’s not even winter! Way to go! If you are looking for information on snow conditions, you’ve come to the right place, just at the wrong time. Once the snow starts to fly come October (let’s hope we get started then) or November (yes, please) then we will start telling you what’s going on and maybe keep track. That way you can get fired up for when we open for skiing and riding again in early December.

In the meantime, you should be thinking about summer fun, and we have a lot of it starting Saturday, June 14th. Including riding nearly 30 miles of mountain biking trails up here on the Big! We are especially excited to get dirty on our “new” trails; you know the five miles of trail we added last summer? They’ve been hibernating under all the snow we had this winter and are going to be epic! You’ll be about to read updates and conditions of these trails in the Trail Report which will be written twice weekly.

If you are still longing for winter, I don’t blame you. Last winter was really fun and we had great snow! From Opening Day when we could ski Hellroaring Basin to the nearly 8 feet in MARCH. Good times! Enjoy these stats:
