I snowboard here because I like the lack of crowds, steep pitches, and crummy weather keeping the crowds down and the snow good. Thank god for the socked in weather because otherwise we would have way to many people here and this actually would be a "resort". For those who like to ski and snowboard come on out here and those who like to whine and compare here to there; go there instead this winter, you'll most likely get better weather, better service and better skiing. Besides the summertime in Whitefish is really where its at. Incredible golf courses that are affordable, fishing, biking, rafting, hiking, long days...the list goes on.
