Mountain Life Photography
Look for Mountain Life Photographers in the orange jackets all over the mountain. We offer family portraits from 10am to 2pm on top of Chair 2 or on the Summit when the weather allows. Portraits also arranged by appointment at alternative locations.
An action photographer is stationed on an intermediate run from 10am-12pm Thurs-Mon. Inquire in the Base Lodge for our location. Ski by, remember the time, and then find your photo at our sales desk in the Base Lodge that afternoon or the following day.

Whitefish Mountain Resort announced June 15, 2015 that it has received approval from the Flathead National Forest to begin the groundwork as part of its $1.2 million improvement project at the Summit of Big Mountain. The project includes a major renovation to the Summit House, a new ski patrol headquarters building and the drilling of a redundant well.
The Summit House remodel includes adding a mezzanine level with 1,700 square feet and approximately 150 seats, and new windows providing northwestern views. Additionally all of the building’s windows will be replaced as well as an entire exterior remodel with new siding, stonework, trim and lighting. Restrooms will be added to the main floor as well as an expansion of the main entry.
A new ski patrol headquarters building is also part of the proposal. This planned two-story 800 square foot building would replace the current 175-foot cabin and include plumbing, a patient treatment area, and a private office for the ski patrol manager. The exterior of the building will receive the same new facade of the Summit House, and the Top Shop and Chair One lift building will also coordinate.
In addition to the Summit House remodel and construction of the new Ski Patrol Headquarters, crews will also drill a redundant well to improve its water delivery infrastructure to the Summit House and Patrol HQ.
Whitefish Mountain Resort completed its two-year $1.29 million Flower Point Project by installing a fixed-grip triple chairlift to the north side of the mountain for the 2014/2015 season opening up access to new runs and glading from the top of Flower Point creating an additional 200 acres of lift-served terrain and providing more dependable conditions early and late season on its north-facing slopes.
The Flower Point Project added four new runs for winter 2013/2014, and with the addition of the chairlift four more runs will greet skiers and snowboarders this coming season. Flower Point is so named for the wildflower-covered alpine meadow on its peak and offers a spectacular view of the North Fork area in Glacier National Park. In tribute to this national treasure, most runs are named after locales in the national park: North Fork, Whiskey Spring, Big Creek, Inside Road, Outside Road, and Hidden Meadow. An additional run, Ridge Run, will run along the northeast boundary of the resort. The lift will also provide access to a sixth new run yet to be named on the south side of Flower Point.
In 2013 an additional 100 seats were added with the 1,200-foot addition to the Base Lodge. In 2014 a half-million dollar renovation included an expansion of the food court area improving the efficiency and flow, and providing new food stations creating more options for guests. Additionally the Coffee Bar was relocated adjacent to the Base Lodge Patio, and a new seating area will provide indoor seating for customers as well as overflow seating for the Base Lodge Cafe.
