Great time to be a buyer! Seller's are becoming conditioned to the fact that there are a lot of choices for buyers in the current market so prices are being adjusted.

Headed up the ski hill yesterday. 12" of snow fell in Kalispell and a little less in Whitefish. By the time I got up there the powder was pretty tracked and it was still very cold. I know the people who were on the first chairs hit it just right. I'll be there next time! Lunch at Hell Roaring on ...

Whitefish Mountain Resort is opening the entire ski hill for opening day tomorrow! We had a big dump on Monday and even Hellroaring basin will be open which we usually have to wait a few weeks for. So you can ski from top to bottom opening day. The downside is that we are in a record breaking col...
