Trail Report

Reported on Aug 2nd, 2015 at 09:32PM by Kate*

Patrol: 406.862.2940

*** This trail report will be updated throughout the summer as conditions warrant. ***


Beat the valley heat and come on up to Whitefish Mountain Resort! The mountain temperatures can be 10-15 cooler than in the valley. Freebird bike trail has re-opened after some extensive dirt work below CH 5. Roll through at an inspection speed first as the trail has changed considerably in places.

Huckleberries are in full swing. They're everywhere! Along the Danny On, you'll find them to be spread out more with bushes that have been picked over. If you're looking for a huckleberry harvest, you'll have to venture farther off the beaten path. Please do not hike on bike only trails.

DETOUR - The Summit Trail connector to the Lift Plaza is closed because of a snowmaking repair taking place. Please ride around on Bond street or around the Bierstube to the Birch lot.

FREEBIRD - totally reworked between the bottom of CH 5 and Larch.

OVERFLOW - new set up jump for the Table Line.

SIDECAR - SIDECAR is open once again with an improved bridge.

TNRL Continues! Week 4 is upon us. Join us for an awesome evening of biking, Otter Pops, and great prizes. Did we mention that it is super fun?

Keep up with what is going on in the bike park here and on Instagram ( #bikewhitefish )
