Torchlight Parade at Whitefish Mountain Resort: December 24
The torchlight parade is a Christmas Eve tradition for many families with good reason. Whitefish Mountain Resort welcomes Santa Claus to greet the children, and a hush of silence falls over the crowd as the lighted torches swoosh down the hillside, making the eyes sparkle of children and adults alike. The torchlight parade is a great reminder of the magic of Christmas.
Nordic skiing at Glacier Nordic Center
Just across the road from Grouse Mountain Lodge is the Glacier Nordic Center, which features groomed, lit paths for cross-country skiing. Squeeze a workout into your morning or spend the day sliding along—when it’s so convenient, you can make your visit as active or as mellow as you’d like.

Forest Service signs off on Whitefish Trail Project
Daily Interlake | November 20. 2019 by Matt Baldwin
Construction of an extensive trail system that connects Whitefish with the upper reaches of the Whitefish Range has received final approval from the U.S. Forest Service.
The Flathead National Forest on Monday issued its final decision notice that found no significant impact for the long-discussed Taylor Hellroaring project.
A proposal to construct an extensive trail network on U.S. Forest Service land adjacent to Columbia Falls is also moving forward.
The Flathead National Forest issued its draft decision last week for the Crystal Cedar project, which finds no significant impact for the plan to build nearly 25 miles of new trail just north of town. The proposed action also includes commercial timber harvest on 2,435 acres, as well as non-commercial harvest on 1,287 acres.
