What sort of activities can I enjoy at Whitefish Mountain Resort during the summer?

Hiking Trails:
Spend the day hiking a variety of mountain terrain, from sub-alpine forests to rolling meadows and many. Whitefish Mountain Resort offers 3 different hiking-only trails, starting from the Base Village. The 3.8-mile Danny On trail features sweeping views of the town of Whitefish, the Flathead National Forest and the majestic Glacier National Park. Combined with the East Rim and Flower Point loop trails you’ll be sure to find your bliss. Don’t forget your bear spray!

Downhill Mountain Biking:
Typically open from early June to early September, the Whitefish Bike Park has over 20 miles of downhill-only trails for all ability levels. All of these trails are lift-accessed for an easy chairlift ride to the top! Rental bikes and gear are available at Village Rentals in the Base Village. 

Alpine Slides:
The Alpine Slides are the epitome of family fun and perfect for all ages! Take a chair ride up with your sled from the Base Lodge and hold on for a safe and smooth ride down… Like summer bobsledding! Each sled is equipped with brakes so you can enjoy at whichever speed you like. 

Zipline Tours:
Zipline Tours at Whitefish Mountain Resort are great for the whole family or anyone looking for a bit more of a thrill! Each tour runs 2.5 hours of flying above lush pine forests with amazing views of the Flathead Valley and surrounding mountains. Zipline guides will walk you through the tour and keep your safety equipment dialed in. These tours contain the longest single-span zipline in the state of Montana! 

Scenic Chairlift Rides:
With wildflowers blooming in fields below and blue sky overhead, there is no easier way to see all of Whitefish Mountain Resort than a scenic chairlift ride! This super-accessible experience is great for any individual with your choice between a gondola or chairlift. Once you arrive at the Summit, soak in the amazing views of Glacier National Park and grab a snack or beverage at the Summit House. Ride the chairlift or take a stunning hike back to the Base Village. 

Aerial Adventure Park:
Connect with nature on another level at the Aerial Adventure Park! This obstacle course is laid out in the treetops with plenty of fun to be found throughout the course. This is an awesome way to challenge yourself in the company of great friends and family! Each ticket gets you two hours in the park and a guide to escort you and make sure all safety precautions are followed. 

For the Kids: Our Strider Bike Park and Spider Monkey Mountain activity areas are perfect for the little ones! These bikes (and helmets) are provided in the cost of admittance for the Strider Bike Park. Spider Monkey Mountain is the perfect kids compliment to our Aerial Adventure Park, a two-story inflatable obstacle course. At the end is an awesome slide that will be sure to give the kiddos an awesome smile! 

Flora and Fauna:
In the peak of summer, spend the day wandering the fields of bear grass, glacier lilies, and other wildflowers in bloom. In August, gather up your family and fill a bucket with ripe huckleberries which grow along the mountain side! For the best wildlife viewing, hike to the summit in the early morning or late-afternoon. Bears, eagles, deer and moose can be spotted from the Danny On trail. Don’t forget to bring your bear spray!
