Montana’s Whitefish Mountain Resort is embarking on a $1.4 million Flower Point Project to enhance its ski offerings, scheduled to be constructed in two phases and completed for the 2014-2015 winter season. Plans for the project include the addition of approximately 200 acres of lift-served skiing including 32 acres of cleared runs and new gladed areas, as well as the purchase of a new fixed-grip triple chairlift.
“We are delighted to begin work on the Flower Point lift and trail system this summer and provide lift access to more terrain,” said Dan Graves, Whitefish Mountain Resort president. “The lift increases access to an area of our mountain known for having the most consistent snow coverage and will provide quality skiing in early and late season.”
The first phase of the project will include the purchase of the chairlift and the clearing of timber, beginning in mid-summer with expected completion in fall 2013. In summer 2014, the second phase will bring the installation of towers and terminals.
