Winter at Whitefish Mountain Resort

In the ‘30s local skiers discovered good skiing on the “big mountain” north of town. Since then we’ve been committed to a life of good times, great people and deep snow. In Whitefish you’ll find a community true to itself and a deep-rooted lifestyle where character is encouraged.

Powder Magazine heads to Whitefish to explore the skiing and the scene, on and off the hill, for their ‘Passing Through’ video series.

We welcome skiers and riders who are seeking a mountain that is uncrowded, beautiful and affordable.

70th Anniversary Series – Big Mountain Then & Now

Much has changed since 1947. The ski industry has seen many advancements and our resort has grown with many improvements. Yet we still maintain the same atmosphere and vibe as a warm and welcoming place. In celebration of our 70th Anniversary season, we approached a few seasoned locals and asked them about their time spent on the mountain.

Vintage Videos

These four vintage films have been converted from their original 16 millimeter form to digital for your viewing pleasure. Big Mountain of Fun, made in partnership with the Great Northern Railway, was produced by Empire Photosound, Inc, and directed by Richard Jamieson in the early 1960s. The film features a classic girl meets boy at a ski area story. Yes the mountain is ours, yes the girl came by train, yes the boy was a ski instructor. Cool Winter, Mountain Standard Time and I am the Mountain were produced and directed by Jim Rice, Big Mountain’s first official videographer. Fun fact: Jim Rice also tended bar at the Bierstube, and as one might expect, Jim knew a lot of skiers and heard a lot of stories.

Quietly Selling Something Quite Different

In December 1962 Sports Illustrated published a feature story about the emergence of ski areas in the west, and writer Ezra Bowen introduced Whitefish in contrast to other resorts, “While Alpine Meadows and Vail talk millions, Big Mountain, Mont. is quietly selling something quite different.” He wrote that in addition to its scenic slopes and reliable snow, Whitefish had an aura of belonging, friendliness and good cheer. The same holds true today.
