Trail Report

Patrol: 406.862.2940


It's a great day for hiking and riding at Whitefish Mountain Resort.Yesterday's rain showers helped break up the smoke from the wildfires in Washington and Oregon, so you have great views of Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. A little rain also got dust levels down in the bike park! . We have started our excavator work!!! Check the trail report for updates on where we are and what we're doing. It's that time of the summer to start looking for huckleberries-the purple gold of Montana! You can find huckleberries up to about 5200 ft right now, especially in open areas that get a lot of sun!

Week 2 of Thursday Night Race League was a great success. Check out the results HERE.


EXCAVATOR WORK will be taking place in the following places:

ARNICA RIDGE-7/21 We're making a more pleasant climb out of the ponds!

SUMMIT TRAIL-7/22 New berm construction near the bottom of Chair 1

OVERFLOW-7/22 Building a progression drop zone above the existing trail. It's gonna be rad!

The bike patrol and trail crew will be all over the mountain during the next month building some new lines, improving existing features, and rebuilding some sections of trail. Please use caution and respect ALL temporary closures and re-routes. We will update the Trail Report with information about where we are working and roughly how long we will be at a section.

Twilight Nights (lift runs later) with bike clinics, and a free shuttle to and from town begins July 9 to August 13!

Thursday Night Race League began July 10! Find course maps on our EVENTS page.
