Whitefish Mountain Resort Turns 70, Women’s Ski Day Coming Up

Dec. 14, 1947, was the first opening date for Whitefish Mountain Resort. They will be celebrating Big Mountain’s 70th anniversary all season long, and hopefully a repeat of last season’s record breaking 400+ inches of snow.

Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017, they will host the Founder’s Celebration in the Lift Plaza at 10 a.m. when they honor co-founders Ed Schenck and George Prentice, and Lloyd “Mully” Muldown, considered the “father of skiing in Whitefish.” More celebrating will take place during Hellroaring Ski Heritage Days, Jan. 19-21.

Chair 5 is now installed on the East Rim and finishing touches have it ready to ride on opening day, Dec. 7. Plans call for chairlifts 7, 11 and the T-Bar to be running opening day as well.

Ed and Mully’s building got all new siding, new windows and impressive, redesigned entrances. Everyone’s favorite classic-The Bierstube-also received a major exterior remodel and got a new covered deck.

If your pre-purchase lift tickets online you can save anywhere from $22 to $36, depending on the day of the week, off the window lift price, except for holidays.

Women’s Ski Day is Saturday, Dec. 16, and a full-day lift ticket and half-day lesson is $59. Following the lesson your instructor will give you a voucher for a free Frequent Skier Card, and Ed and Mully’s is hosting an après ski event. Grab some girlfriends and enjoy the day.
