Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Resort

We’re almost a week into ski season, and I still haven’t even SEEN snow. What’s up with that?! I don’t have an answer to that. What I DO have is a picture from Whitefish Mountain Resort in northern Montana. (Formerly known as Big Mountain resort – in fact, that’s what it was called when this picture was taken.)

Those peaks in the distance are inside the boundaries of Glacier National Park, if that helps out with your mental map. I’ve said it before, and I’ve said it again. Whitefish mountain is a FANTASTIC place to ski. It’s one of my all-time favorites, in fact. (Along with Schweitzer in Idaho, Sun Peaks in BC, and Mt. Bachelor in Oregon.) This picture, and a few others, were used by the hotel we stayed at last time we where there (the Kandahar lodge) in various ways (in brochures, at ski shows, in banner ads online, etc..) although at the time I was taking it I had no idea that it would be. Had I known that was a possibility, you can bet I would have brought along more than a point and shoot. In fact, the folks at the hotel have asked when I’m coming out next, I guess they’ve got some more pics they want for a new brochure. :) So as if there wasn’t enough reason to go back as it was, now there’s that too. So assuming the rapture doesn’t come before then or the Cubs don’t win the world series, I will MAKE IT OUT THERE again, THIS YEAR. Wanna come?

Notes: Canon PowerShot S500 (Point and Shoot). 1/250s, f/13.0.

    Mt. Jackson is the peak and this is a special picture in that vistas of the Park are not overly common do to storms and fog…even the local crowd comes out in -20*F weather to afford such an astounding venue. It is quite breath taking.
