Whitefish Mountain Resort is enjoying their summer season on Big Mountain with their summer season kicking off last month. The mountain is open daily for action through Labor Day, and Friday-Sunday through September 29 with activity and lodging rates starting at $65 per person.

Since 1947, Whitefish Mountain Resort has welcomed skiers and snowboarders alike, who prefer shredding mountains with smaller crowds, to their location in the gorgeous backwoods of Montana. The resort features a relaxed, fun vibe for visitors enhanced by a variety of terrain and little to no lift lines. When the snow melts in the warmer months of the year, the resort offers thrilling zip line tours in addition to mountain biking. This year the Bike Park is featuring five new trails, which adds five more miles to the Bike Park. For more trail information and the latest conditions visit skiwhitefish.com/trailreport.php.
