Perfectly charming when trees sport spring greenery but arguably more popular come first snow, Whitefish, a small northern city, is a winter wonderland known for its accessible slopes and proximity to Glacier National Park.
The Bitterroot National Forest occupies 1.6 million acres in the Northern Rocky Mountains, surrounding the Bitterroot Valley in west central Montana and a portion of the Selway River drainage in east central Idaho. National Forest lands begin in the foothills above the Bitterroot River Valley and extend into the Bitterroot Mountain range to the west and the Sapphire mountain range to the east.
