The resort made the decision to close after careful thought and discussion in light of the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19. Although there have not been any confirmed cases of COVID-19 at our resort, or in the Flathead Valley, we feel the need to do our part in limiting the spread of the coronavirus.
It is with a heavy heart that we have reached this decision however, we feel at this time this is the best thing to do for the health of our employees, guests, and our community. It is particularly upsetting because we are all skiers and understand how important this recreation is to our mental health and well-being. For all of our guests currently at Whitefish Mountain Resort and those who have planned trips here this March and April, we sincerely apologize.

We would like to impose upon you a stern piece of advice: now is not the time to get injured, to put yourself, or put others at risk. If you wish to participate in this activity, for your safety and the safety of our employees at work, FOLLOW OUR POLICY:
THROUGH MARCH 28, 2020:
8AM-4PM EAST ROUTE ONLY! The East Route is the only approved route for uphill and downhill skiing from 8AM to 4PM.
Before 8AM- no route restrictions.
After 4PM—no route restrictions.
After MARCH 28—no route restrictions.
AT ALL TIMES:
LEGAL INFORMATION: Whitefish Mountain Resort is the holder of a Special Use Permit on U.S. Forest Service land in the Tally Lake Ranger District. That permit states that: “The Special Use Permit authorizes the resort to provide public opportunities for skiing and snowboarding and natural resource-based outdoor recreation in National Forest Settings … The lands within the special use permit boundary shall remain open to the public for all lawful purposes; except for any restrictions the resort and Forest Service agree to be necessary as documented in the Operating Plan … The resort is responsible for public health and risk management within the resort boundary.” All dogs at Whitefish Mountain Resort, including on Forest Service Land, must be leashed and controlled at all times, pursuant to Federal Regulation 36 CFR 261.53(e). During ski season, dogs are not permitted outside of parking areas at the resort.
Yes. We are currently allowing uphill access in accordance with our regular post season policy. All uphill and downhill traffic must use the East Route between 8AM and 4PM. There are no uphill or downhill route restrictions before 8AM and after 4PM. Please refer to the Uphill Policy page for rules and current status prior to coming up.
As for this season’s current passholders, we are incredibly sorry the season had to end early (we wanted to keep skiing too). We will continue to refund passes per our stated policy for those who were injured and unable to ski this season due to their injury. We have not set pricing for next year’s passes yet – that was on the short list of things to finalize in the coming days before this closure announcement came. We will be announcing next year’s season pass pricing at the appropriate time which means not right now. We have for a long time focused on maintaining a value pricing position for season passes as well as a dedication to annual reinvestment in the resort experience – that won’t change.
All buildings with seasonal lockers have been closed until further notice.
Gift cards do not expire. You may use your remaining balance on a future visit to Whitefish Mountain Resort.
Yes, all spring events are cancelled. If you pre-registered, a member of our events team will be reaching out to you regarding any refunds or credits.
All public buildings are closed with the exception of the Village Market/Lodging Front Desk.
Hours Effective March 25: 8AM-6PM
