Whitefish is a small Montana town of about 5000 people. Its beginnings were rooted around the rail system and the city built around the tracks. Today, freight and passenger trains still travel through the town and Whitefish is notable as one of Amtrak's top ten stops.
Of special interest, the Stumptown Museum, located in the historic depot building, includes many railroad artifacts as well as community memorabilia and photographs. In 1990 the Depot was restored by the Historical Society to its original 1927 Glacier National Park chalet-like appearance. Great Northern Locomotive #181, one of only seven of its kind ever built, can be seen at the museum.
Considered by many as one of America's most scenic and breathtaking places in the country, the area is wrapped in the majesty of the Rocky Mountains and offers spectacular views into Glacier National Park.
The Big Mountain Ski Area, one of Montana's best ski areas, and Whitefish Lake make visiting there a true joy.
This small, friendly Montana town offers the best in four-season recreation, while the outstanding restaurants and quaint shops make it a true gem.
