Tucked in a forested basin on Big Mountain is the village of Whitefish Mountain Resort. For travelers year-round, it lays out a broad spectrum of accommodations. You can find cozy lodge rooms, modest motel rooms, condos, or upscale vacation homes.
The mountainside resort lodging has advantages. In winter, it’s easy to pop onto a run in the morning to reach a chairlift or drop by in the afternoon to shed layers. Best of all, you don’t need to get in a car to go skiing.
In summer, you can hike or mountain bike right out the door of your lodging. Short walks lead to the scenic chairlift rides and mountain activities. Often, when summer packs accommodations in Glacier and Whitefish, you can still nab a last minute place at Whitefish Mountain Resort.
