Whitefish Winter Carnival 2019

Whitefish Winter Carnival

The Legend of  Ullr

Once upon a time, there lived a god named Ullr who reigned over winter activities in the Nordic regions. Aiding him were his Prime Minister and Queen, who were skilled in creating the beauties of winter.

As time went by, however, his subjects become engrossed in exploring the world and its oceans, and they paid less homage to their god-king and the festivities of their winter season, so Ullr became a god all-but-forgotten, except in dim tradition.

A bawdy adults-only good time, enjoy a hearty roast of Whitefish and current events.

A fun, family event! Come in out of the cold and be a part of history with the unveiling of King Ullr LX and his Queen of the Snows.

Dust off your moves and your duds for an evening of groove. Prizes for best costume.

An annual tradition, watch the new Prince Frey and Princess Freya crowned at half-time, and cheer on the Bulldogs!

This sport combines a mix of two of Montana’s favorites – horses and skiing.

Support Carnival and kick off the weekend with merriment and frivolity at the Carnival Gala.

Governor Bullock

Governor says recreation stirs economic growth

Montana Governor Steve Bullock says it doesn’t take much thinking to realize why people are visiting the state.

“Last year we had over 13 million visitors to our state,” he said. “They weren’t coming to go to our Wal-Marts, right? They could do that at home. They’re coming to see the opportunities that make this state so amazing. And these visits stir economic growth, create local and good paying jobs.”

Bullock kicked off the first Business of Outdoor Recreation Summit last Tuesday in Whitefish at Grouse Mountain Lodge focusing on the value Montana’s public lands have both recreationally and economically.
