Whitefish, MT

Feb 27-March 6, 2019 • ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE SPOT LEFT!

Whitefish, MT Feb 27-Mar 6, 2019

Once called Big Mountain, Whitefish Mountain in northwestern Montana offers spectacular views of nearby Glacier National Park and with over 3000 acres of goods has more terrain than Jackson Hole or Aspen, and rarely a lift line!  Vast bowls, tree skiing, steeps, and some of the longest intermediate groomers, Whitefish can accommodate skiers and riders of all levels and abilities.

The town of Whitefish, with its false fronts and boardwalks resembling a frontier town only five miles down the road from the ski resort and 15 miles from the airport in Kalispell, has a bustling cultural and social scene with a distinctive western flavor.  A vibrant theater and music scene also flourishes here.

We will be staying at the premier boutique Kandahar Lodge at the foot of the ski area.   The free S.N.O.W. bus provides convenient access from the Kandahar to the town of Whitefish.  And with the on-site Café Kandahar, this gourmet restaurant is an improbable slice of culinary heaven.  Award-winning chef owner Andy Blanton is an unabashed ski bum, culinary globetrotter, champion of local cuisine, and makes this his home.  And the menu of outdoor options around Whitefish is similarly sumptuous.  

Powder, huge terrain, no lift lines, gourmet food, perfect location, make this a trip not to miss.  ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE LEFT!

  • Is this for singles or couples?

    Both.  Most of the people on all of our trips are single.  We do get couples as well, but mostly singles.  Some come with a friend or two, and MANY come solo.  That is why our trips work.   They are great for everybody.  You will meet many new friends whether coming alone, with a friend, or even a significant other.

  • Can I go solo?

    Of course!  Many of or travelers go solo, that is why our trips work!  We match roommates so you do not have to pay a single room supplement, and it’s an instant friend.   We send along a trip leader/s to gather folks to ski, après, dine, nightlife, sightsee, together.  Trips are not cliquey.  If you want to meet new people, make new friends, going solo is a great way to go.  We don’t make you do anything, but if you want to meet and hang with others, it is there for you.  If you want to do your own thing, that is okay as well. 

  • What is the age range? Are they all 20s- early 30s?

    Age varies from trip to trip, but on vacations the age range is more in the 35-50 age range.  Some older, some younger, but the majority will be in the 35-50 range.  Some of the weekend trips, and sports leagues age range is more 20’s and 30’s.  

  • Hotel/sleeping arrangements?

    We are staying in a typical hotel, with 2 beds and two people per room.  If going solo, we will match you with same gender, same age (close as possible), smoker/non-smoker.  We do not match opposite genders, unless requested by both people.  OR you may request to be matched up with a friend or significant other as you wish, of any gender.  You may also chose to pay for a single room at an extra cost of $450, based on availability.

  • I snore/what if my roommate snores?

    If you know you snore, you may want to be considerate and pay to get yourself a single room, or bring earplugs for your roommate.  If you are worried about your roommate snoring, you may want to consider paying for a single room or bringing ear plugs.  A single room is an extra $450, based on availability.    

  • Will there be people to ski with?

    From intermediate to advanced, chances are very good there will be many people that ski at your level.  The trip leader/s will arrange for those interested to ski together on the first morning to match up with same-level ability, and to make sure nobody is skiing alone that does not want to ski alone.  Beginners may want to sign up for lessons. 

  • Will there be people to après/dine/hang out with?

    Yes!  Trip leader will arrange daily meetings to ski together, to meet for après ski, for dinner, nightlife, etc.  You do not have to do all or any, we don’t make anybody do anything, but if you want company, it will be there.  You can pick and chose where to meet up with group as well. 

  • Are there any other activities other than skiing?

    Yes.  There is the usual off slope winter activities of dog sledding, snowshoeing, etc.  The town of Whitefish is only a few miles away and there is shopping, sightseeing, etc in town.

  • How far is it from the airport to hotel?

    We fly into Kalispell and it is only 22 miles to the hotel.

  • Should I rent or bring my own skis/board?

    This is a personal choice.   For baggage, we are at the mercy of the airlines baggage regulations.  You should check their website for up-to-date regulations. Currently it is $25 for the first bag and $35 for the second bag each way.  Your ski/board bag will be accepted as checked baggage.  A boot bag is considered part of the ski bag.  So if you are bringing a suitcase to check, and your skis/boards it will cost you $70 to bring your skis/board.  Rentals are usually around $30-50 a day…so could be about $300 to rent for the week.  A bit more for demos.  We recommend bringing your boots.  So, you do the math, weigh the hassles of bringing with the hassles of renting and you decide.  There are rental shops close to the hotel, just google ski rentals Whitefish.  If you rent online there is usually a discount. 

  • Can I extend my trip longer?

    Yes.  If you’d like to stay longer we can likely extend your return flight.  There is a deviation fee to do so, usually about $150 and you can return from Kalispell at a later date.  You would be on your own to find hotel rooms, get to the airport, etc.  Or you can take $525 off the trip price and make your own flight arrangements as you wish and meet us there.
