Record-breaking Season

This snow season has been EPIC, that about sums it up. In terms of snowfall, Whitefish Mountain Resort has broken record after record.

  • In February, we received storms on top of storms totaling more than nine feet in the month alone
  • Snow fell 18 of 28 days in February
  • Total Snow to Date: 375"
  • Settled Base: 128"
  • In the top 10 for biggest settled base in the rocky mountains
  • To date, we have received new snow for the past 18 days 

Snowfall by Date

The Best Day: Sunday, February 26th

I personally had my (dare I say it) best day EVER up there on Sunday, February 26th. I had planned on skiing in the backcountry that day so I was already up early. My ski partner for the day called to alert me to the 10" of fresh on the mountain. We both figured we outght to get a couple runs in-bounds before heading into the side-country for the day. But, after that first run of the day, we knew were in for it, there was no way we were leaving lift served powder on a day like this.

Ah, yes, it 'twas a day to remember. Blower pow, faceshots, thigh deep, refills all day and squeals of joy are accompanied that unparalleled snow day.

Apparently, I am not alone. CEO, Dan Graves said, “Locals are saying that this is one of the best seasons they’ve ever had and that Sunday, February 26th was their best day ever on this mountain..."

There's Still Time to Get Out There

There's still time to get yours in the three remaining weeks on the mountain! The last day of the winter season is Sunday, April 8th. From the Spring Brewfest to Pond Skim, closing season festivities are always a blast. See you up there.
