Gateway to Glacier National Park

A resort town nestled among the snow-capped Rockies of northern Montana, Whitefish is a year-round mountain haven. Founded in the late 1800s, the town was a major logging site before it became the mecca of outdoor recreation it is today. In the winter, Whitefish Mountain Resort welcomes more than 350,000 skiers to its vast and pleasantly uncrowded terrain. In the summer, the nearby Glacier National Park beckons, with its jaw-dropping vistas and more than 700 miles of superb hiking trails. In Whitefish’s charming downtown, the Railway District offers a variety of locally owned shops and galleries, like artisan jewelry crafted with Montana-native gems.

  • Whitefish Mountain Resort

    Offering more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain, this resort is one of the largest in the U.S. In the summer, it becomes an aerial adventure park, with zip lines, obstacle courses, and an alpine slide.

  • Fly-fishing on the Flathead

    This storied river offers some of the best fly-fishing in the country. Though it can be fished all year, the summer months are the best time to cast a line into the Flathead—myriad area outfitters can be your guide.



  • Forecasting your Whitefish Vacation

    Like many mountain destinations, Whitefish sees warmer days with significantly cooler nights, sometimes dropping as much as 40°F. But winters are relatively mild—considering the town’s elevation—with highs in the 30s thanks to its location near Northwest Montana’s myriad lakes. In the summer, temperatures hover pleasantly in the high 70s and low 80s.
