Whitefish offers a variety of terrain, amazing tree skiing, and powder. You'll also get great Glacier National Park views from the mountain. Did I mention powder?

How to Get There

Must Do in the Winter

"Big Mountain" (to the locals) is the ski hill in NW Montana. Great terrain from powder to groomed runs to terrain parks.

Awesome even on a bad day

I went on an "icy" day. Locals were complaining about the conditions, but by east coast standards, I'd call it powder.

I'm a professional photographer living and working in Whitefish, Montana. I travel as much as I can with my beautiful wife Megan, and am always scheming a new adventure, or a new way to do an old trip. My passion is the outdoors, and getting people excited about recreating outside. By day, I teach PE and health at the local middle school, by night, I fight crime in a spandex jumpsuit... not really, but I do enjoy taking lots of pictures and working for cool outdoor companies when not at school throwing dodge balls at 8th graders.
