Kalispell - Whitefish Questions - Page 2

post #31 of 35
Just one of those things. Every once in a while I fantasize about living in a different ski town. Recently it's been Whitefish, even though I've never been there.

Many years ago I took the train one-way from Milwaukee to Spokane, with a stop in Whitefish along the way.  Riding the train ride was not bad, but you go through the prairies with nothing to look at, and it makes lots of stops, so it takes forever,  I think coming from New York would be way too far and take way too long to be enjoyable in the least.  One way was tolerable, but going both ways for that far would would be an ordeal, unless you are a real heavy drinker and would not mind waking up hungover and still having another day and a half on the train, obviously not an option for your family.  Maybe Amtrak has an express route now, but the romance of the train wears off quickly when it keeps stopping and you just want to be there.

On the accomodations, I would recommend staying in Whitefish rather than Kalispell.  Much better vibe.

This is an old thread from last year which was resurrected.  I decided against the train pretty much for those reasons.  Never found decent airfare either, so we bailed out and ended up at the MIGHTY OKEMO instead!!   I'll get there some day though.  For now, I'll hang on until our March trip to Telluride and Crested Butte.
