Uphill skiing is one of the fastest growing winter sports in the country, and more and more skiers and split boarders are turning to resorts for this incredible workout. While some resorts have responded by severely limiting or banning access, others like Whitefish are supporting the community’s interest in the sport. Two approved routes are well signed and provide safe uphill travel from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the season. This schedule accommodates everyone, from the local dawn patrol and after work crowd that lives in town, to the resort guests who want the chance to get some added exercise in on their lift-assisted ski trip. See the resort’s website for more details.
