Did you know that Montana Has An International Peace Park? I live in Whitefish Montana and I’m sure you’ve heard of Glacier National Park. You’ve probably spent a lot of time there. But did you know that part of the park located in Montana borders Alberta, and shares an international park with the Canadian province?  The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park ties Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada with Glacier National Park, and I think everyone should try to visit at least once in their lifetime  Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the United States    The parks merged in 1932, when the efforts of Rotary International members from Alberta and Montana joined forces.  The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park was created to honor peace and goodwill bet...

Click on the link below from Powder Magazine for a classic tale of what it is like to be in Whitefish Montana during Winter Carnival. I loved the part about the parade stopping so people in the parade could visit with friends spectating :) Gotta love small towns where you always see someone  you know. http://www.powdermag.com/stories/makes-ski-town/

Everyone in the Flathead Valley knows, we are a big draw for Canadian skiers. Canadians come down here year round for a variety of reasons. Last week we had dinner at the Tupelo Grill in Whitefish. We were surrounded by fun loving Canadians. They kept us alive financially during the recession and still are pumping money into our economy. Skiing on Saturday, there were friendly "north of the border" folks parked all around us while were getting our ski gear on. This article from a Calgary web site, names Whitefish Resort the only south of the Canadian border place to ski in the spring time. http://www.avenuecalgary.com/articles/5-ski-hills-for-the-best-spring-skiing Still getting new snow almost daily, catch some sun and views to die for from the slopes while you can!

Last weekend we stopped at Montana Coffee Traders for an Americano and headed to Whitefish for the Skijoring World Championship. We had not attended this event for a few years and were amazed at how it has grown! 3000 spectators attended on Saturday to watch skiers and snowboarders being pulled by riders on horses around a jump course. Fun and sometimes frightening to watch! National Georgraphic Traveler included the Whitefish Carnival and the Skijoring competition in it's best winter trips list. This horse went down, lost his rider, but still finished and got a time:

http://www.flatheadbeacon.com/articles/article/inspiration_tops_cnns_list_of_best_ski_runs/37419/ The Flathead Beacon report has "my ski hill" and one of my favorite runs, highlighted from a CNN report naming the top 100 ski runs around the world. The views on a clear day of the Rockies into Canada are overwhelming. Amazing how Whitefish Mountain Resort is getting noticed by the media the last few years.  Snow is great, better than most areas of the country, this year. Sunny all this week and awesome conditions. Plan a trip on Amtrak or fly into Glacier National Airport and visit NW Montana.

Whitefish Mountain Resort is opening the entire ski hill for opening day tomorrow! We had a big dump on Monday and even Hellroaring basin will be open which we usually have to wait a few weeks for. So you can ski from top to bottom opening day. The downside is that we are in a record breaking cold spell, so coverup any exposed skin and put on the woolies!

Of World's most cozy winter destinations.  Big Mountain, Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana, United States One of the most popular spots at Whitefish Mountain Resort is the summit, which lies 7,000 feet (2,133 meters) above sea level. From here, the views of the jagged peaks of Glacier National Park are breathtaking. But it's the snow-covered trees -- known locally as snow ghosts -- that really stand out. When the weather's right, what's known as a cloud inversion can take place. The clouds below become locked within the valley and visitors on the summit can look down upon a sea of white. "Winter in Whitefish is so magical probably because the mountain weather is so dynamic and extreme," says Brian Schott at Whitefish, Montanta Visitors' Bureau. "Winter storms race in from the west coas...

Sun, and more sun!! While the valley has had a smattering of fog and clouds, Big Mountain has been in the sun. It is great to head up to ski and watch the car thermometer rise as we drive up higher in elevation. The valley can be 10 degrees and the summit of Whitefish Resort will be 23 degrees. Nice to sit on a high speed chair and get warmer instead of colder as you climb the hill. See the video below of the happenings from today on the mountain. Those telemark skiers skinning up the mountain are incredible athletes in the Whitefish Whiteout. Went to the Montana Coffee Traders cupping event this morning. Went through an extensive lesson in smelling and tasting coffee. First as the grounds, then with the water in the cups, then lightly stirring and smelling after 4 min., then slurping t...

Great for the valley even if we don't enjoy the actual show The Bachelor. Last night there was a concert in downtown Whitefish. Country singer Sarah Darling did a free to the public concert with the current Bachelor competitors. I could see that Big Mountain (Whitefish Mountain Resort) had the night sking lights on the slopes visible from my house. Maybe some filming was happening there too?  The lights are visible from town so added some atmosphere for the concert filming. Summer weather is back after some very chilly nights last weekend. Sun and more sun, loving it! Getting in those last horse rides before the shoes are pulled from my horses.
