SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
Everyone's favorite place in the winter is Whitefish Mountain Resort! Their powder is not to be rivaled and they have so many acres of in-bounds skiing area there is no way to see the whole mountain in one day!
If you are trying to get away from the crowds and want to enjoy a more low-key skiing experience Blacktail Mountain is south of Kalispell and is a local favorite!
The Flathead Valley offers more ice fishing opportunities than can be listed, from Flathead Lake to McWennegers Slough or Little Bitter Root to name few! Trout, Pike, Perch, Kokanee Salmon, and Crappie are just a handful of species in our local waters!
Located in historic downtown Kalispell, Woodland Park offers a variety of winter activities including ice skating and sledding. When you are ready to warm up just head for the heated lodge by the pond with a thermos of hot coco!
