Come join your fellow ski club members at the meeting on January 15, 2013, and discover Montana’s other great ski destination: Whitefish Mountain Resort at Big Mountain.
Combining great ski terrain, western snow, and a charming western town, Whitefish is one of the west’s best kept ski secrets. Last time we visited Whitefish was 8 years ago!! So we are excited to hear what’s new and refresh our memories on what we loved about skiing Whitefish Mtn!
We are going high tech – the mountain rep will be visiting us via video & Skype!
We are really making an effort to get more mountain reps to present to our club, ESPESCIALLY from resorts we haven’t even visited at all or in quite some time.
Attached is a short reference sheet about Whitefish. For those interested in non-ski diversions, Glacier National Park is just down the road, along with a variety of other outdoor activities.
See you there………
