Whitefish area information and the town of Whitefish, Montana
The mountain town of Whitefish is located in northwest Montana, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. We are located 15 miles from Glacier International Airport and 45 minutes from Glacier National Park and the famous Going to the Sun Road. Whitefish can be described as the perfect western town. The laid back atmosphere makes this friendly community a happy and warm place to live, work and play.
Local residents work hard and play harder. The warm days of summer offer opportunities to enjoy fishing, boating and swimming at Whitefish Lake and the abundant area rivers. Hiking trails are plentiful, too. Winter brings plenty of snow for skiing and snowboarding at Whitefish Mountain Resort, and the annual Winter Carnival fills the winter months with plenty of activities and celebrations.
Glacier National Park is open year-round, just 32 miles from town. Fish a clear mountain stream, hike an alpine trail, or embark on a historic driving tour of the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road. Enjoy more than 700 miles of well-marked trails to explore mountain lakes, glaciers, plant life, and glimpses of the full-time residents such as grizzly and black bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, moose, deer, and more.
