Huckleberry Picking Updates

Information

Whitefish Mountain Resort is one of the most prolific and easy to access destinations for huckleberry picking in the northwest. Once the berries start showing up this summer, check here for updates on where to find the purple gold.

What to bring with you huckleberry picking:

  • Container(s) in which to carry your huckleberries.
  • Water & snacks (at altitude it’s important to be well hydrated and fed).
  • Sunscreen & rain gear (you know what they say about the weather, “Wait 15 minutes it will change”).
  • Bear spray (if you are picking hucks you are by definition in bear country).
  • A friend (someone you can chat with and help keep the bears aware of your presence).

Huckdate: August 2nd, 2018

Hucks are on the Danny On! Best to start in the village and enjoy your hike the first two miles. You may find a few before crossing Big Ravine, however your best shot is between Chair 4 (the one that’s not running) and Chair 5 (the other one not running).

You may have to venture a bit off the trail so keep your bearings. Also the slope gets pretty steep when you take the turn around the mountain on the east slope (Haskill Slide).

They will keep getting bigger and better as well as move up in elevation in the coming weeks so no rush, but enjoy your hike and purple snack!
