March Trail Report

Well, we've seen it all this winter - snow, rain, ice, fog, wind, and even some sun! The trails have been holding up well, but given the variability in temperatures and precipitation, conditions are constantly changing, and traction devices are recommended across the entire Whitefish Trail system. In particular, Lion Mountain and Skyles are very icy right now. Haskill from the Reservoir trailhead is south facing and has less ice, but please use caution in more sheltered areas such as the section in the cedar trees near the old dam. Beaver Lakes loop is lovely for walking, running, and fatbiking on packed snow thanks to grooming by the Whitefish Bike Retreat. As you venture farther from town to places like Swift and Lupfer expect to find deeper snow and less packed trails.

The community Nordic trails accessed from the Big Mountain Trailhead are still in fantastic shape thanks to the efforts of Glacier Nordic Club's grooming team! Visit their website for updates on their grooming schedule and latest conditions and consider supporting the grooming program. When out walking or snowshoeing on groomed trails, remember to stay to the side of the groomed track to protect the track for skiers.

Get out there and enjoy the snow while it lasts. See you on the trail!
