Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams.

Whitefish Mountain Resort is located at The Big Mountain in northwest Montana. The resort is situated approximately 8 miles from the town of Whitefish and only 35 miles (56 km) south of the Canadian border.

Whitefish Mountain Resort is home to a small village that has all the charm you’d expect to find on a mountain getaway. In the village, you can find restaurants, bars, shopping, plus a variety of lodging.

The mountain is separated into 3 faces – front-side, back-side and western aspect and has more than 3,000 acres of terrain, which is known for its Rocky Mountain snow that stays soft for days.

Whitefish Mountain Resort offers terrain that is of interest to all skier or snowboarder levels and has a pleasant atmosphere due to the lack of lift lines. Hell Roaring Basin is the largest area for advanced/expert skiers who want more of a challenge and the convenient Big Mountain Express chairlift will take you directly from the base to the summit in minutes.

There is a bus service from Whitefish Mountain Resort to the town of Whitefish with various stops along the way. This is an awesome way to get to the mountain if you are staying in town and do not want to drive. Also, it provides the closest access to the slopes after leaving the bus.

Escape2ski took advantage of the “free” Snow Bus to the mountain on a very snowy day, rode the slopes all day long and at the end of the great day skied all the way to the bus stop and the waiting bus. With a “well done” from the bus driver, we were on our way.

During the winter season, Whitefish Mountain Resort also offers a free village shuttle that runs from the base lodge to the village, as well as, Hibernation House and the Lodging front desk. The base lodge shuttle also stops in the lower parking lots. Call 406-862-3687 for more information.

Escape2ski left Whitefish Mountain Resort with many fond memories of our days on the slopes, from the varied weather conditions to the descent from the summit to the base, knowing that a convenient single chairlift ride was available to reach the summit, once again!

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.
