Conveniently located only a 30-minute drive from the resort, Glacier Park International Airport (FCA/GPI) offers direct flights from 15 major U.S. cities. Flights from Seattle, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Denver, Phoenix and Las Vegas are offered year-round and others are offered seasonally.


The historic Whitefish Depot is a popular stop along Amtrak's scenic Empire Builder line. This passenger train arrives daily from major cities including Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Chicago and Minneapolis. From the east, the train arrives in Whitefish around 10 p.m. From the west, it arrives around 7 a.m. — just in time to get breakfast before heading up the mountain for first chair.


Renting a car? Check out deals from our preferred partner Enterprise. If you're visiting during the winter, we highly recommend a vehicle with four-wheel or all-wheel drive to safely navigate snowy or icy roads.

Directions from downtown Whitefish:

Head north on Baker Avenue over the railway viaduct. Baker becomes Wisconsin Avenue, then becomes East Lakeshore Drive.

To reach Lodging Check-In:

Pass the turnoff for Glades Drive and continue along Big Mountain Road to the upper village area. You will cross under the skier bridge and pass the Kandahar Lodge on your left.
