Once called the Big Mountain in northwestern Montana, Whitefish Mountain Resort offers spectacular views of Glacier National Park and Flathead National Forest. The original resort originally opened in 1947, and the slogan for the area “Ski the Fish” has been around since the 1990s. With its many trails and year-round activities, skiers and boarders of all levels will enjoy this scenic resort. Please visit the Whitefish Website for more information.
We will be staying at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake where we booked all available 2 and 3 bedroom condos. If the condos fill up, we also have reserved several Studios with 2 Queen beds. The Studios do not have a full kitchen, but do have wet bar with coffee maker, sink and microwave. Condos will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and when full we will use the studios.
Transportation Options - Update - the SBA flight is full. Please sign up to be placed on the waiting list.
If you purchase your travel through the club you will not need to make any other arrangements. We will fly on United Airlines (25 seats) from Santa Barbara (SBA) through Denver (DEN) and then on to Kalispell (FCA). The return flight goes through Denver to SBA. Upon arrival in Kalispell we will travel by shuttles for the ~30 minute ride up to Whitefish.
