3889 Big Mountain Road, Whitefish, MT
All aboard for the next stop:
We are giddy with anticipation for our Rail/Air/Ski trip to Montana next March 3-11. Picture rolling out of the beautifully restored Grand St Paul Union Depot at ten o’clock pm on a Friday night. You will enjoy having
drinks and talking with friends until the wee hours while we are hurtling (trundling?) Westward towards Montana.
Later you may retire into to relative comfort of an
(optional addl. expense) sleeper compartment on the rail line that James J. Hill of the Great Northern Railroad built in the 1800's. The less expensive base option will be to buy a coach seat that reclines with AC outlets where you will be able to have a comfortable ride and roam parts of the train... See America like some of our ancestors did.
We will arrive in Whitefish Montana about 8 PM the following night after seeing some of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains before dark. After a short bus ride and grocery stop we will arrive at our slope side condos a couple hours later.
The luxury condos are in the midst of a mountain village with 5 restaurants/bars and gathering spots and the
ability to ride a free shuttle into the town of Whitefish to rustle up some trouble/excitement there. You will
have the opportunity to experience some of the best skiing of your lives with 3000 acres of snow fields and helicopter
and Snow Cat skiing as well.
Whitefish is known for consistent snowfalls in March of 5"-8" as opposed to infrequent huge dumps of snow.
Two or three bedroom Condos are available and trip pricing will be out soon to your club reps so start lining up your roommates!
A bonus will be an optional ski trip to Fernie Ski Resort in British Columbia for about a two hours bus ride North for the
adventurous crew in our cadre.
I’m proud to present our trip coorganizer Jerry Ratliff who is a world traveler with lots of train experience and will answer our questions before and during the trip (we won't be sure if
he is making stuff up until later!).
Please see our ad in the Sportster and sign up for one of the greatest ski and vacation experiences that North America can offer. We can send you the signup form or please access them on the sitzmarkmn website.

The nostalgia of the railroad outbound trip, great friends old and new, World class skiing, and a possible visit with our northern neighbors!
