Big Mountain, Big Fun
Whitefish is a town like no other and quite possibly one of the most attractive and awe inspiring cities in the entire United States. It sits on the west edge of Glacier National Park, surrounded by much of the same landscape that makes the park so notable. It's an area that has 4 seasons to enjoy and take part in, leaving this town bustling year round with visitors and residents vying for access to all Whitefish has to offer.
Whitefish is historically a railroad town and Amtrack still has a functioning station that carries people east and west on a daily basis. The train stops at the historic Great Northern Railroad Depot. Besides acting as a functioning train station you will also find art galleries inside and museums that include the Great Northern Locomotive #181 – which was only one of seven ever built. An experience like no other.
During the summer there are numerous public parks to enjoy within the city. You can visit the sandy beach along Whitefish Lake and enjoy a picnic under the sun or under a shelter if it starts to rain. The local Golf Club hosts a 36 hole course that can satisfy the most avid golfers wishes. And, of course, if you want to head out-of-doors and out of town just a short distance, you can find places to fish, hike, camp, ride horses, or listen to music.
In the winter people don't slow down in Whitefish. If anything, the activities pick up. As the snow accumulates so do the visitors to Whitefish Mountain and Ski Resort, sometimes referred to as 'The Big Mountain.' With a summit elevation of nearly 7,000 feet and an average snowfall of 300 inches, it's no wonder people flock from all over the world to get a taste of this powder. But, fear not, if low and slow is more your style you can visit the Glacier Nordic Center which has 15 kilometers of cross-country skiing for the whole family.
Because of its size and the number of people that visit, you can find all the amenities of a big city in Whitefish. Find tasty local beer at the Great Northern Brewery (everything in Whitefish is 'Great Northern' something), find great local shops selling local arts and crafts, local food, and other items from all around the world. Although the downtown has great shops and even better views, if you're looking for a different place to eat, ride the gondola up to eat at the summit of Big Mountain.
