Christmas is THE best time to come to Whitefish! Whitefish, MT is known for being a quaint and quiet mountain town nestled in the heart of the woods and the hills in the Montana countryside. Not only can you find some peace and serenity that is a welcome getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, but you can take in the sights of nature, the sounds of the wildlife, and wander around the cultural downtown area as you stay here. Of course, you can stay in your cool and cute accommodation option from I Love Whitefish the entire time — but all of our rentals are also just steps away from the best attractions in the local area, so you can get around to see some of the best sights in no time at all! We have a whole entire list of the best Christmas activities in Whitefish for you to visit during your stay here. But if you want a list of the very best, check this out:
Nordic Skiing and Other Activities in Whitefish
You don’t have to be an Olympic Nordic skier to enjoy tackling these trails! Go to one of the rental places and rent yourself a pair of the super-long Nordic skis to try your luck at cross country skiing to see all that this incredible countryside has to offer. Wind through the pine tree forests and cruise down the snow-covered hill as you dream of candy canes and presents under the tree.
The best part about these fun activities is that there is a professional area where you can get lessons, rent skis, and learn from the very best! Head to the Glacier Nordic Center, a perfect Nordic ski area that features well-lit paths, groomed trails, and paths that range from beginner to advanced. You can go as fast or as slow as you want on these manicured paths, making it ideal for both young athletes and old people alike.
Whitefish Mountain Resort
Another fun thing to do during your time here in Whitefish over the Christmas holiday is going to the Whitefish Mountain Resort! Even if you just want to come here to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of après ski, we love this Nordic ambiance and Scandinavian vibe.
You can come here in the morning to rent some skis, take a lesson, or head out on the slopes. Either cruise down the blue and green slopes with ease or tackle the Black Diamond if you are an expert skier! We guarantee that you will have an amazing time, even on the chair lift that takes you up to the very top of the mountain, offering 360-degree panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and the town far below.
Plus, for adults or families with teenagers, we LOVE going night skiing over the Christmas season! This is a great way to come on a discount, have a fun night out that doesn’t involve drinking alcohol (yet!), and keep your kids entertained during their holiday. Head here any time on Friday or Saturday evenings through the beginning of March to enjoy cruising down the hills on a cold evening and getting some hot cocoa afterward.
Snowshoe in Glacier National Park
The last fun thing to do during your time in Whitefish over the holiday season is to go snowshoeing in Glacier National Park! Glacier National Park is one of the most popular parks in the entire country – and for good reason! With far-reaching views, hundreds of miles of trails, and eye-catching nature and wildlife, this area of natural beauty is ideal for those who are outdoor-minded people.
Head here at any time of the day with your own snowshoes, or rent a pair, and set out on one of the manicured trails. There is no better way to get in some great exercise, soak in the sights, and have fun with your friends or family!
