There’s a distinct feeling in Whitefish—a sense of belonging visitors experience that stems from friendliness of our community. This natural, easy-going atmosphere is a way of life for locals who happily welcome visitors from around the world and share good times at Whitefish Mountain Resort and Whitefish, Montana. This series of videos profile a few of our local characters and what it is about this place that makes them so happy living here.
Quietly Selling Something Quite Different
In December 1962 Sports Illustrated published a feature story about the emergence of ski areas in the west, and writer Ezra Bowen introduced Whitefish in contrast to other resorts, “While Alpine Meadows and Vail talk millions, Big Mountain, Mont. is quietly selling something quite different.” He wrote that in addition to its scenic slopes and reliable snow, Whitefish had an aura of belonging, friendliness and good cheer. The same holds true today.

Whitefish Bike Park
You know the feeling– the state of being completely immersed in the moment. As a mountain biker, it’s a connection to the trail as if your bike is an extension of yourself. Rolling over features, plunging through berms, catching air and landing like a feather. The Whitefish Bike Park is known for its flow. A feeling that begins as you approach the mountain, elevates as you ride the lift and culminates as you descend lap after lap.
These four vintage films have been converted from their original 16 millimeter form to digital for your viewing pleasure. Big Mountain of Fun, was produced in the early 1960s in partnership with the Great Northern Railway featuring a classic girl meets boy at a ski area story. Yes the mountain is ours, yes the girl came by train, yes the boy was a ski instructor. Cool Winter, Mountain Standard Time and I am the Mountain were produced by Jim Rice, Big Mountain’s first official videographer. Fun fact: Jim Rice also tended bar at the Bierstube, and as one might expect, Jim knew a lot of skiers and heard a lot of stories.
