Summer in WhiteFish

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

   Hey everyone I'm in Whitefish, Montana right now for vacation. I have to say the most beautiful place I've ever been to and the view from the peak of Big mountain is the prettiest thing I've everrrrrr seen, no doubt. I went mnt. biking today and ziplining. Had an absolute blast!! Summit trail was very fun and Runaway trail was hell for my buddies and I. I'm staying up here for 6 days. I've got 5 left.

Fri - White water rafting.

Sat -Glacier National Park hiking

Sun -unknown

Mon - unkown

Tuesday - fly back 

 

    Anyone have any suggestions or musts on what to do on Sunday and Monday? Any comments will help. 8)

My parents used to have this framed picture on the wall when I was a kid of people skiing "summer powder" at Big Mountain.  Evidently some flower that grows every 7 years and peoples found a way to ski on them.  Any of those in sight?  Or was it just photoshopped and I'm gullible...

Lot's of nice golf courses in the area.  Heli tour over GNP was nice.

Should be some whitewater operations going on with rafting guides. 

A little horseback trail riding is always a good thing in Montana too.

A day hike in Glacier?

That was beargrass and there is no way you could ski on it.  It's very hummock-y.

Fishing on Flathead Lake with one of the charter tours?

Rent a boat from Lodge at Whitefish Lake and go water skiing?

Golfing any of many many courses, might even fit this in late in the day given our long days. 

I think a second hike in Glacier, maybe to Iceberg Lake, would be well worth it, depending on where the first hike was.  Avalanche and Hidden Lake overlook are sort of "givens".  Let us know where you went on your first one.  Iceberg Lake might still be full of snow, but is a good hike for seeing Grizzlies (please buy pepper spray first!!!!)  Iceberg is on the far side of the park and would require you to get up really early just to get over there.  Another nice hike is the Highline hike, LONG.  You'd make use of the shuttle buses and take the bus up to Logan and hike down to the Loop.  GREAT VIEWS, see here.

 

Another nice hike is Siyeh Pass.  You can arrange to meet for a ranger-led hike if you read the park literature, which is nice because there are grizzlies in the area on this one.  But, be prepared to move at the rate of the group, which for me is too fast as I like to take pictures and not "catch a plane" or whatever was going on with the group I was with!!!

Thanks alot for the advice everyone! Yesterday we went to Glacier NP and I was speechless. We hiked Hidden Lake and the whole hike was on snow!! Snow past the 4th?? That was awesome. At the top Hidden lake was very pretty. Great place everyone should go here at least once in their life.
