Whitefish Mountain Resort was named one of The Weather Channel’s “Ten Most Scenic Resorts,” ranking No. 6 on the list. It’s not difficult to see why.
A crystal clear day on the summit of Big Mountain reveals spectacular views into Glacier National Park, its snow-white fortress of mountains rising like a parapet to the [...]

As the snow piles up on Big Mountain this week just in time for opening day, so too have the praise and accolades been heaped on Whitefish Mountain Resort with abandon, first by National Geographic Adventure, which named Whitefish one of the World’s 25 Best Ski Towns, and then by Trip Advisor, which ranked [...]

Snowy Big Sky Resort is trying to entice snow-deprived Colorado and Tahoe skiers and riders to Montana in January.
For the month of January, skiers with the Epic Pass from Vail Resorts in Colorado and California will ski for free at Big Sky. Rather than complain about the lack of snow, Big Sky is “spreading the love” [...]
What’s almost better than a pot of gold? Twelve inches of new snow!

Check out a video shot by Lost Trail’s Will Moss on Saturday at the [...]
Time to stop talking the talk and start walking the walk.
