If there is one thing Montana is well known for, it’s the incredible winters that we often find ourselves experiencing. However, when most people think of this, they envision individuals skiing and maybe a few children attempting to build a snowman. However, while this is certainly the winning activity, there are many other ways one could choose to spend their time in the wonderous city of snow. So, if you are considering coming and visiting this next vacation period, then read on and discover what things to do in Whitefish, MT in winter await you in our wonderous city!
Enjoying the Snow
One can’t discuss Montana nor Whitefish without at least mentioning the fantastic skiing which can be found in the area. For instance, head on over to Whitefish Mountain Resort and make the most of the whopping 3,000 acres of explorable terrain and over a hundred different runs, thus ensuring you’ll never find yourself lacking in places to explore. There is even a ski school for those either looking to learn the popular hobby or are just looking for a refresher course or to work on their specific techniques.
Of course, there are plenty of other Whitefish winter activities other than skiing. For instance, one will find that the snow makes for a rather whimsical and awe-inspiring sight in the woods, where what was one green and lively, now is pearly white and sparkles in the mid-day sun. For this reason, head on over to Bar W Guest Ranch which offers a 2-hour horseback riding tour that will take you through pristine woodlands and glorious open meadows. Not only this, but they also offer a sleigh ride which follows the same path but is perfect for those looking for a romantic rendezvous to add to an already memorable vacation.
However, if one is looking for something unique, then head on over to the Base Camp Bigfork. While being a bit out of the way, it is certainly worth the trip. This is because you not only get to ride upon a dog sled, but even guide and mush the dogs you’ve been caring for and training the for either half the day or the entire day.
Enjoy Some Exploring
With the woods and wilderness so close, it is quite tempting to go out and find your own adventure. Well, with the help of some snowshoes you will be more the able to explore the trails as you trek deeper and deeper into the woods. For instance, one could head on over to Glacier National Park and enjoy exploring the 700 miles of trails, or perhaps take part in the free guided snowshoe tours put on by the Apgar Visitor Center. However, make sure to keep your eyes peeled as even in the winter there are several animals that enjoy coming out to say hello. For instance, many guests have seen everything from your classic deer to Canadian geese and lynx, beavers, and elk.
While it is fun to find your own adventure out in the wilderness, it can be nice to have an experienced guide with you to show you things you might never have noticed, or appreciated, before. For instance, one could head on over to Whitefish Vertical Adventures where you will get to make your pick of a feature to ice climb up. What makes this tour nice is that it is fully customizable to not only your preference, but also your skill level. So, whether you have never before seen an ice axe, or have already climbed Everest twice, you’ll find a perfect tour for you. Afterwards, head on over to the Hot Sulphur Springs to warm up in the hot springs.
