SKI Magazine has named Whitefish Mountain Resort as the “No. 3 overall” ski resort in North America — the popular Whitefish resort’s highest ranking yet by the news outlet.
This is the ski resort’s third appearance in the magazine’s Top 10 listings.
SKI Magazine’s Resort Guide is the longest-running ski resort survey in the industry. Readers are asked to rank the North American resorts they have visited in the last two years in a variety of categories; the survey provides an additional opportunity for readers to speak to each resort’s greatest strengths through comments.
Overall ranking, according to a press release, is determined by a combination of reader’s scores across 21 different categories.
Whitefish earned 12 Top 10 rankings, including No. 1 in Local Flavor, No. 2 in Value and No. 4 for Service, Scenery, Charm, Apres and Overall Satisfaction. The resort also ranks No. 15 for Travel Ease, No. 20 for Terrain and No. 22 for Snow.
“We are deeply honored to be named among the top resorts in the West in SKI Magazine’s 2020 Resort Guide; it is our mission to provide a memorable experience that is affordable, personal and fun. This year’s ranking is indeed a sign that skiers appreciate finding a ski area that values character, and makes guests feel relaxed so they can be themselves,” Whitefish Mountain Resort Chief Executive Officer Dan Graves said in a prepared statement.
“This ranking illustrates our commitment to providing a high level of hospitality while maintaining the community’s unique and colorful qualities that set us apart, without charging a premium for it. Whitefish’s warm and welcoming personality extends beyond the resort to all the businesses throughout the community that take care of our visitors and go above and beyond to make them feel welcome.”
Whitefish Mountain Resort is scheduled to open for the 2019-20 season on Dec. 6.
