VERBATIM FROM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE WEB PAGES: Whitefish is an historic
railroad town nestled at the north end of the majestic Flathead Valley.
Whitefish is an island of culture in an ocean of mountain recreation.
Our greatest resource is the friendly people who enjoy sharing the town and
outdoor activities with visitors. Whitefish truly is the “last best place.” We offer a
small town atmosphere with big spirit and enduring local pride.
We have it all from endless recreation immersed in the beauty of the mountains,
a variety of shopping options downtown, and award winning dinning experiences
to discover. Whitefish Lake is at the edge of town, and we sit at the base of
Big Mountain Resort, one of North America’s top ski destinations. The “Crown of
the Continent” – Glacier National Park – is just thirty minutes to our east.
An endless array of recreational opportunities and cultural events await you.

We are well underway in planning presentations, seminars and activities
