One of the best ways to experience the heart and soul of northwest Montana is exploring many of the 30+ miles of lift-accessed downhill and cross country mountain bike trails at Whitefish Mountain Resort.
With nearly 30 miles of trail, the Whitefish Bike Park offers something for everyone, from the heart-pumping technical Runaway Train, to the meandering 8-mile intermediate Summit Trail, and flowy berm-filled Kashmir and Freebird. Plus numerous XC trails for those who like to pedal.
Is there a trail system beyond the Whitefish Resort bike park?
The community of Whitefish has a plethora of mountain biking. The Whitefish Trail is the hallmark singletrack with 26 miles to play on. The newly constructed Spencer Mountain trail system is a freeriders playground (visit FlatheadFatTires.com for updates on trail construction). Plus lots and lots of trails in the National Forest. Pick up a guide book from any local bike shop.
Last year's big news… New trails/features/amenities...
In 2013, Whiefish added 5 miles in 5 new trails: Freebird, Kashmir, GNR, Classic Rock and Overflow. All are lift-accessed downhill trails.
Whitefish also upgraded its demo fleet with new Kona Entourage downhill bikes.
What's new for 2014? New is the Wednesday Twilight Nights - July 9-August 13, the lift will run an extra hour (last chair at 6:30). Plus those nights we've added a complementary shuttle to and from downtown Whitefish. Departing downtown at 4:30 for the mountain, and departing the mountain at 7:15 back down the hill to town.
Chair 1 accesses the Summit Trail from 10am to 6pm, providing access to all the downhill bike trails, and offers xc riders the ability to link to many of the cross country trails creating multiple options for loops.
Best time to visit Whitefish Bike Park?
Due to the amount of snow on the mountain, trails will be opened in stages as they get dug out. We anticipate everything opened by early July. Trails ride awesome all summer long.

Whitefish, MT – Just over one year after its completion, Whitefish Mountain Resort’s Kashmir Trail has been named a model “Flow Trail” by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).

Whitefish, MT – Whitefish Mountain Resort's inaugural enduro race, the Enduro Primeval, took place on Saturday, June 28. In true Northwest fashion, the weather treated racers to fog, rain and gloriously muddy trails. Twenty-two competitors from ages eight to 62 took on Whitefish's new downhill trails, as well as old favorites, in the six-stage race, which also included Chair 1 as an untimed uphill stage.
Whitefish, MT – After five years of planning and several months of building, Whitefish Mountain Resort announces the completion of their Bike Park expansion project. The addition of five new gravity mountain bike trails more than doubles the downhill freeride experience in this Northern Montana resort.
Whitefish, MT – Construction of five new downhill mtb trails at the Whitefish Bike Park is ahead of schedule, with two of the new trails completely open for this weekend's opening, and another new trail is already two-thirds completed.
Whitefish, MT – Mountain bikers will soon have more than double the downhill experience at Whitefish Mountain Resort as five miles of trail will be added this summer. Work on the resort’s five new downhill mtb trails began last October and resumed May 8. The resort is optimistic that trails will be ready to ride by mid-summer; weather permitting.
