Any skier or snowboarder who's visited Whitefish Mountain Resort knows it's a true winter wonderland. With nearly 3,000 acres of varied terrain and lift tickets under $100, our unbeatable value makes it a no-brainer for family skiing vacations.

But did you know Whitefish Mountain Resort is also an amazing summer destination?

Just 30 miles from the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park, and partially located on the Flathead National Forest, the resort is an ideal base camp for anyone looking to experience the natural beauty of Northwest Montana. And you can have plenty of fun right here on Big Mountain, where we enjoy stunning views of the Northern Rockies, comfortable lodgings and a variety of family-friendly summer activities.

Whether you're picking huckleberries along one of our scenic hiking trails, running laps on our lift-served mountain biking trails, flying high on Montana's longest zip line tour, playing on ropes and cable bridges in our Aerial Adventure Park, or taking a Scenic Lift Ride and enjoying a cold beer on the Summit House deck, it's sure to be a fun time.

For families with kiddos, we also have two Alpine Slides, a Strider Bike Park and Spider Monkey Mountain!

Oh, and speaking of mountain bikes, we offer mountain biking lessons as well as mountain bike rentals for those who are just starting out or don't want to travel with their bikes!

Want to learn about the incredible wildlife native to Northwest Montana? Visit the U.S. Forest Service's Summit Nature Center to see hands-on nature exhibits, get hiking and bear safety tips, and join a ranger for a guided discovery walk!

As always, we'll ease into the summer operating season by opening for weekends only, starting with Memorial Day weekend! Daily operations will begin in June and some activities will return to weekends only after Labor Day. Then we'll close in mid-September and start preparing for next ski season!
