Montana’s Whitefish Mountain Resort is rolling out the lift and lodging packages for mid-winter with on-mountain lodging. Other hotels around Whitefish are offering lift and lodging deals, too.

Whitefish is one of those rare ski resorts that is accessible by Amtrak with the route connecting from Seattle, Portland, or Chicago. The resort and Amtrak have teamed up for a ski, stay, and train package. It includes three days of lift tickets and two nights of on-mountain lodging plus round trip train fare. Rates vary based on the origin of the train, but as a sample, packages start at $450 per person based on train fare from Seattle.

The resort is also running a January White Sale. The sale adds an extra day of lift tickets and lodging on for free for stays anytime Jan. 2-31. If you buy two days of on-mountain lodging and lift tickets, you can get a third for free. If you buy three days of lifts and lodging, you can add on a fourth for free. The offer is even valid for the Martin Luther King holiday weekend.
