STARTING TO FEEL LIKE FALL!
Summer is starting to wind down, but there's still plenty of adventures to be had at Whitefish Mountain Resort! The huckleberries are incredible this year. You can find plenty of berries at the higher elevations. The rain has helped and folks are finding some marble-sized hucks everywhere! Thursday Night Race League finished up last night on the XC-Enduro course. Huge Thanks to all our racers and sponsors for a successful season!!! Rumor has it there were a couple Elvis sightings. Just a reminder the mountain will only be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays following Labor Day. Don't forget about the upcoming Double Dip Downhill race weekend on September 6th and 7th.
