Whitefish Mountain Resort is on Big Mountain in the Flathead National Forest of northwest Montana. Whitefish is Montana’s original Big Mountain skiing (the ski area dates back to 1947), redubbed Whitefish Mountain Resort in 2007. We love Whitefish for the 3,000 ac of skiing off all sides of the spectacular 6,817 ft summit of Big Mountain, and the cool Wild West ski town 8 mi down the mountain road, at the edge of Glacier National Park and the largest freshwater lake in the west – Flathead Lake.
