Whitefish Ski Holidays

Whitefish in Montana is an excellent ski resort with some great long runs and a good snow record. A little harder to get to but definitely worth the extra time for that real 'get away from it all' feeling and un-crowded slopes.

Whitefish Mountain Resort (formally Big Mountain Resort) is located in the Rocky Mountains of Northwest Montana, near the stunning Glacier National Park and just 7 miles from the beautiful town of Whitefish.

The ski resort is easily accessed through Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell which is only 18 miles away. It is also easily accessible from Canada (Fernie is only 2 hours away across the border) thereby creating the 'two nation vacation’. It makes an excellent choice as part of the Rockies Loop Ski Safari.

Whitefish has not only recently changed its name but has also invested a lot of money in improvements. It now has a brand new high-end Base Lodge with leather sofas and open fire places, 2 new high-speed quad lifts, a new beginners ski area and an expanded terrain park. In addition, there are lots of new accommodation options, the majority centrally located and ski in ski out. The full service Mountain Village offers over 200 lodging properties, ranging from value hotel rooms to luxurious town homes.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Whitefish the town - great. We will go back again and again. Up the hill to the resort, we felt as though we were the only Brits to discover this fantastic secret. Not only that, most of our American friends also say 'Where?'. Montana is amazing - Glacier and Waterton National Parks are immense. The snow, the skiing, the place, the bar (Bierstube), the people ... But please don't tell too many of your friends, we don't want it spoilt for our next trip.
