Throughout January, huge storms brought seven feet of snow to Montana’s Whitefish Mountain Resort and, as of early February, the resort offers guests an 83-inch base at the summit and a 53- inch base at mid-mountain.
“What a difference a month can make, the resort is a winter wonderland much to the delight of our guests,” said Dan Graves, president of Whitefish Mountain Resort. “The mountain is skiing great and we have some of the happiest employees in the industry waiting to welcome skiers ready for powder.”
Furthermore, the resort is offering skiers a new promotion. Called the 30/30 Deal, visitors can save 30 percent on lifts and lodging. Rates start at $74 per person, per night, based on double occupancy and a three-night minimum stay. The deal includes lodging, lift ticket and a hot breakfast each morning.
Rising above the town of Whitefish, in northwest Montana 35 miles away from Glacier National Park, Big Mountain is the quintessential skier’s mountain averaging more than 300 inches of snow annually on 3,000 acres of bowls, chutes and glades on all aspects.
