Some essential truths about skiing at Whitefish:

  • It's not glitzy or crowded
  • It's not known for being sunny, there are some foggy days.
  • Whiteflish has a great town in he valley, but the base area is less 'destination ' than most ski areas of this size.
  • Since it's off most people's radar it's a great value for the budget conscious skier.

Sibhusky has taken a decidedly different approach to the Guide (which has its own website), concentrating on a trail map interface and tons of pictures, with descriptions, photos, comments about traffic, history of the trail name, etc. Presented are not only marked trails, but those little gems not shown on the trail map. Click on an unlabeled section and see what comes up!

One handy feature is the Orientation page, which lists 'tours' you can take of the mountain so that you can feel comfortable with what is available and how the trails are laid out. The tours are all on Intermediate trails, but you can get a good look as you go at most of the advanced and expert trails available for later exploring. Pictures on that page are limited to make it more mobile-friendly.

For those who haven't been to Whitefish in a few years, be sure to spend some time perusing the Flower Point section. Not all the tree skiing opened up by the additional lift has been documented, but you can be sure that will slowly come.

There are also pages about the climate and resort trivia, recommendations on off piste skiing for various ability levels beyond the standard green/blue/black markings, tips for dealing with the fog, local breweries, etc.
