Recreation in Northwest Montana

Wonderful Wildlife, Stunning Scenery, Abundant Recreation, and the Arts make the FlatheadValley a destination worthy of an extended visit.

During the winter months recreate at Big Mountain Resort on the 3,000+ acres for terrain, snowmobile on 200+ miles of groomed trails, cross-country ski at 1 of 8 recreation areas, or snowshoe in Glacier National Park.

Golfers are challenged from early April until late October on every one of the 8 championship courses in the valley. Nothing beats the summer in Montana with long days and cool nights to boat on the lake, mountain bike, whitewater raft, fish, and hike.

Glacier National Park is the crown jewel of the area and is only 25 miles from Whitefish. Visit any time of year to enjoy the numerous galleries, theater and museums in the area.

Temperatures in Northwestern Montana will surprise you! We enjoy a mild year round climate with dry air to make visiting comfortable any time of year. The summer season is particularly wonderful with long warm days (the sun sets around 10pm) and cool evenings.
