Hikers and Bikers and Berries - Oh My!

The huckleberries are really starting to show up now! You can find plenty of huckleberries in the lower elevations and on the ski runs below T-Bar 1. They are starting to show up on the Danny On, but it's more of a sample quantity right now along the trail. Wait a couple weeks, and you'll have no trouble filling those huck pails! Just a reminder that there are other berries out in the woods, some good and some bad. Stop in the Nature Center at the Summit House and learn about them. You don't want to eat the wrong berries! We are continuing to dig some new lines and improve existing bike trail features. Thank you to all of our riders for their feedback and respecting our closures and detours!

TRAIL NOTES / UPDATES

EXCAVATOR WORK will be taking place in the following places:

7/26-7/28 OVERFLOW- We have finished our improvements & Overflow is now OPEN!!! The five table jumps now have two lines; one easy and one advanced. Please scope jumps before riding full speed.

7/30 - 8/1 Kashmir- The excavator has moved to just above the notch and will be working in the Good Medicine area. Detours are in place to take riders around the sections being worked on. Kashmir is open below chair two, however some of the berms are still soft so ride carefully.

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.

The Whitefish Mountain Resort Bike Park was voted the Best in the Mountain West, and 3rd Best Bike Park in the NW in 2013!!
