Deep thoughts by Riley*:

That's All Folks!

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who shared the 2018/19 season here at Whitefish Mountain Resort. I hope everyone had a Hellroaring good time! It sure seemed like it to me. Sure, the weather made 1,000 Turns, which meant there was something for everyone! All of you powder hounds had your fix, there were a number of inversion days which are a true Inspiration for getting on the mountain. Spring skiing came in full force and the sunny, warm days were Good Medicine after all the arctic air came through. I'm sure all of you had more than one Nice Day on the mountain skiing with your friends and family. 

A few cool things to mention:

  • We broke a record for the number of adult "Learn to Ski/Ride" lessons! That means more of you are now ready to join in on all the fun!
  • All of our kids' programs are growing as well as our Freestyle Team-- more kids out there who are learning to love the sport!
  • Frank Creasia is the new vertical champ, he skied 3,555,447 feet this season
  • 120 passholders skied ONE MILLION feet or more (wow, great job you guys!)
  • All of our passholders broke a record this season-- we skied a total of 2,138,100,034 feet!

If you are already thinking about next season and making a list of things you want to do, here's one more: buy your 2019/20 Winter Season Pass. Just remember, the season pass is on sale now through September 30. After September 30 the price will go up.

Now is a good time to take advantage of the installment plan-- six payments between now and November 1, 2019. 

Let's not forget about summer! We open Saturday, May 25 for weekends and then we'll be open daily starting June 15. New this summer-- we are adding a second alpine slide and redesigning the old one so it will be new too.  If you were a 2018/19 Winter Season Passholder you get lots of summer perks.

Also as a thank you for another great season, we're going to up the discount for the first few weekends with our Passholder Appreciation Days-- you will receive 50% off activities and 20% off food.

Thanks again for another amazing season! We will see you again soon I hope, until then HAPPY SPRING! 

Flathead Avalanche Center's current advisory.

*This snow report is one person's subjective assessment of conditions at a single moment in time. Actual snow accumulations can vary widely across the varied terrain of this mountain. Topographic features such as exposed faces, saddles, and sheltered areas, as well as wooded zones and even just the aspect of where the slope is facing will greatly affect how much snow settles there. Please also note that the statistics of this report are input by 7 a.m. each day with various "story" updates throughout the morning. Always check with Ski Patrol if you need more information before you decide where you're going.

Treewell Safety

Skiing and snowboarding off the groomed runs and in deep powder snow is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of our sport. If you decide to leave the groomed trails, you are voluntarily accepting the risk of falling into tree wells or deep snow and suffocating.

A deep snow or tree well accident occurs when a rider or skier falls into an area of deep unconsolidated snow and becomes immobilized. The more the person struggles, the more entrapped in the snow they become. Deaths resulting from these kinds of accidents are referred to as a NARSID or Non-Avalanche Related Snow Immersion Death. Fortunately, these types of accidents are preventable.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT TREE WELL & DEEP SNOW ACCIDENTS


1. Avoid Deep Snow & Tree Areas
2. Always Ski with a Partner and Keep Your Partner in Sight
3. Ski & Ride in Control and Defensively
4. Have a Plan to Survive
