Ranked #1 among Whitefish attractions on Trip Advisor, Scenic Lift Rides are a must do in the summer. Choose from an enclosed gondola or open chairlift, then sit back and enjoy the mountain scenery as well as views of Whitefish Lake, the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park on the ride to the summit. Once at the summit enjoy 360-degree views before returning down the mountain, or spend some time up top.

At the summit:

  • The Summit House, Montana’s only mountaintop restaurant. NOTE: During summer 2016, the Summit House Café will be closed for remodeling. The Summit House Bar will offer drinks and grab-and-go items.
  • The Summit Nature Center staffed by US Forest Service rangers. Learn about the local flora and fauna or join them for a free guided nature walk.
  • Summit Gifts offers souvenirs, clothing, accessories, sunscreen and other items you may need.
  • Trailheads: several hiking & mountain biking trails can be accessed from the summit.
