Uphill access temporarily closed at ski resort

Print Article

Whitefish Mountain Resort has put a temporary hold on uphill skiing access until the slopes receive more snow.

According to the resort, safety concerns prompted the temporary closure, which is goes into effect Friday. The ski resort opens for the season Friday with limited terrain on the north side of Big Mountain.

“Most of the mountain’s front side terrain will be closed until it receives more snow,” resort officials said in a media release. “With these closures, the entire Benny Up Route falls within an in-bounds closure, and currently the resort has extensive snowmaking operations in that area. The lower section of East Route is located in a closed area, and its upper section is located on Moe Mentum and Russ’s Street. With limited terrain available for its guests, the upper section of the East Route does not provide enough acreage to handle both downhill and uphill traffic safely, therefore the East Route will be closed temporarily pending the opening of more terrain.”

Conditions will be assessed daily and uphill travel will resume as soon as trail and snow conditions allow, officials stated.
