Whitefish, the recreation capital of Montana, is truly a magical place where the highest structures are still trees and wildlife still outnumbers residents. This is a place where eagles and osprey soar through the sky as elk, moose, and mountain goat move through the land with natural grace. Dont be surprised if you share a trail or meadow with one of these magnificent animals.

Despite its seemingly remote location, Whitefish boasts among the closest direct air service into a mountain ski town (just 11 miles) in the U.S. Its Northern Rockies location, adjacent to the peaks of Glacier National Park, Big Mountain Resort and the Whitefish Range, is comprised of numerous lakes, including Whitefish Lake, wild and scenic rivers and an enormous valley that stretches 60 square miles and features Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. The location of the valley keeps it safe from extreme climate changes encountered in other portions of Montana, making it ideal for year-round recreation.

The people of Whitefish are genuinely friendly and down-to-earth. The town's low-key atmosphere tends to make life in this tight-knit community a happy and warm place to live as well as visit. Though you may spot a movie star on occasion, Whitefish is the kind of town that wants to keep out of the spotlight despite the high-profile beauty of its own backyard. Success here is measured in terms of how many mountains one has climbed, runs skied or fish caught. The locals are welcoming and willing to share their recreational passions with visitors -- freely swapping stories at the local galleries, coffeehouses or saloons.
