Here’s Why You Need to Visit Montana in the Spring

Glacier National Park Montana in the spring

“Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is.”

 — Jessica Harrelson

Montana in the spring is magical. We still get in a bit of skiing, but we eventually say goodbye to winter weather. It’s always fascinating to watch such a beautiful place wake back up again after being covered in snow for so long! Your experience will depend on what time you visit in the spring. Here’s what you need to know about the season!

Whitefish, MT, Spring Weather

The spring weather definitely varies in Whitefish depending on when you come. If you visit at the end of March or early April, the winter weather still lingers in the 30s. As April gets closer to May, temperatures can be in the 50s and 60s. June, however, has an average high of 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

3 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Montana in the Spring

You Can Still Ski… for a Bit!

Whitefish Mountain Resort doesn’t close until the beginning of April, so you still have time to ski in the spring if you visit at the end of March! We love spring skiing because it usually means that you don’t have to bundle up so much since the weather is a bit warmer. If you want to get in one last run before the season ends, now is the time to do it.

It’s Right Before Peak Season

The summer weather brings more visitors than ever to Whitefish. If you’re looking to visit before the crowds, spring is the time to do it! If you’re concerned about the weather, consider coming at the end of the spring season. It’s still warm enough to hike, bike, and enjoy all of our area’s incredible things to do! Plus, a nightly soak in our hot tub is the perfect way to end a chilly evening.

See why Whitefish is the destination for Skiing?

There’s no place like Whitefish, especially when it comes to skiing. The crisp mountain air and award-winning terrain attract countless skiers year after year! Plus, unlike many other popular ski destinations, it’s very rare that you’ll have to wait in line to go down the mountain. Here’s what you need to know about Whitefish, Montana, skiing!

Where to Ski

Whitefish Mountain Resort is our Whitefish ski destination. Our beautiful mountain is different than many of the big-name mountains you might be used to. It’s one of the last mountains of its caliber that hasn’t been completely commercialized, so it’s something special. Even though it’s one of the biggest mountains with some of the best runs in the state, it’s much less crowded than other resorts of its size. More often than not, you’ll be one of the only ones on the run. Take this time to enjoy yourself and take in the views! Keep an eye out for “snow ghosts.” This famous sighting is just trees encased with rime, but it’s beautiful. 

One of the best parts is that Whitefish Mountain Resort has one of the best grooming teams we’ve ever seen. This way, the mountain can open sooner and be kept open longer! 

Getting There

When you stay at Good Medicine Lodge, you’re just a quick bus ride away from the slopes! The S.N.O.W. Bus stops right in front of Good Medicine Lodge and will take you right to Whitefish Mountain Resort. Check the schedule or keep an eye on the live S.N.O.W. Bus tracker to make sure you don’t miss it.

Lift Tickets

You’ll be surprised to find how cost effective our lift tickets are at Whitefish Mountain Resort! An adult ticket is just $83 for the day or $76 a day for two or more days. Teen and junior tickets are even less at $72 for the day and $66 a day for two or more days. Children under 6 years of age are free! Check out lift pricing for the most accurate rates. 

At the Summit

Local tip: hang out for a bit before you make your way down the mountain! The Summit House Restaurant & Bar is located on the top of the mountain. Ride the lift up, grab a drink and a few bites, then go on your run. You’ll love the 360-degree views of the Northern Rockies and peaks of Glacier National Park.
