Located in the breathtaking Northern Rockies and adjacent to the peaks of Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Resort, the town of Whitefish is home to some of the world’s most beautiful mountains and spectacular, unspoiled nature, including Whitefish Lake and scenic rivers. The location of the valley keeps it safe from extreme climate changes encountered in other portions of Montana, making it ideal for year-round recreation.
Whenever the sun is shining,
I feel obligated to play outside!
