Dogs

Dogs are not permitted on chairlifts as they need to be properly trained to ride them. Dogs are not permitted in the gondolas because if they soil the gondola it is difficult to clean during operating hours making that gondola unavailable for other guests. Dogs are not allowed with Uphill Traffic.

Dogs (or other Domestic Animals) around Resort

Winter: Must be on a leash; cannot leave the parking lot.

Summer: Must be on a leash, not allowed in buildings. People with disabilities may bring qualified service animals onto the resort premises. Whitefish Mountain Resort holds the right to exclude the animals if there is a direct threat to the health and safety or our employees or guests. Outside of the Ides accommodation, animals are not allowed in any rented lodging properties other than service animals. WMR reserves the right to file complaints alleging the misrepresentation of service animals under section 3 of HB 439. Whitefish Mountain Resort has the right to ask you whether your animal is a service animal that is required because of the disability and what tasks the animal is trained to perform for you. The service animal must be housebroken and under the handlers control.

Emotional support animals are not considered service animals per the ADA and they are not allowed on the premises outside the parking lot.
