National Geographic Calls our Neighborhood a Top Destination

Two major magazines have recognized Northwest Montana’s Flathead Valley as a top choice for places to visit and recreate. We are proud that Vogue Magazine and National Geographic have listed the area as premier destinations.

Vogue Magazine listed Whitefish Mountain Resort and the surrounding area as one of six US Destinations of the Month in the ski town category. They had this to say:

“Enjoying a dream location, it is a half hour from the wonders of Glacier National Park and ten minutes from the heady downhill skiing at the Whitefish Mountain Resort.

Most of all, visit—by snowshoe and/or cross-country skis—Glacier National Park, impossibly beautiful, 35 miles away.”

And going even further, National Geographic put Whitefish and the Flathead on the top 25 Best Ski Towns in the World. They also chose Bozeman, Montana to include in this impressive list from all over the planet! We’ll call Bozeman our own too!

In describing the appeal of Whitefish, National Geographic has this to say:

“Whitefish, a former logging and railroad town of more than 6,000 near the entrance to Glacier National Park, has been quietly delivering glitz-free Montana skiing for over half a century.

Whitefish the ski area lives up to its family-friendly billing with good first-timer terrain and an abundance of long, wide-open, roller coaster groomers where skiers and snowboarders of all abilities can get their superhero on. A high-speed quad speeds to the mountain’s summit, which is often engulfed in clouds and studded with thickly rimmed, white trees known as snow ghosts. The ghosts make for atmospheric glade skiing.”

We agree on all counts, and hope you will come to visit our little paradise. Looking forward to seeing you on the slopes!

    I spent sometime in Whitefish last summer and it’s definitely a cool little town with some incredible restaurants and a really good brewery!
