Glacier Nordic Club operates the Glacier Nordic Center at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course and grooms the Upper trails in the Big Mountain Nordic Trail network. Daily Grooming Reports are below. For trail maps and more location information go to either Glacier Nordic Center at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course page or the Big Mountain Nordic Trails page. Once open we groom daily with the goal of completing the Golf Course by 8 and the BMNT by 9 am and posting a complete grooming report. If we are delayed for some reason like weather or an equipment breakdown we will update as soon as possible. Please note that Iron Horse starts grooming the lower BMNT trails at times starting from 7 to 9 am.

DOGS must be on a leash on Whitefish Mountain Resort Property. Please keep your dogs under control and clean-up after them! Dogs may be off leash on the single track Whitefish Trail and on the the trails down Moosehoof (but not Badger). Turn right across the Bridge and head down onto Stotlze lands.
Please educate hikers, snowshoers, and fat bikes on Stay in Your Lane practice and do not use the trails if it makes unsafe conditions for Nordic skiers (dog paw prints can do this too!).
Whitefish Mountain Resort is a good resource for temperature and snow fall for the Big Mountain Trails, and a great web cam.
Lower Trails (Iron Horse Spur, Alex’s Alley and down – groomed by Iron Horse Golf Club)
Iron Horse plans on grooming all trails daily starting between 7 and 9 am. If there is a big snow they will just pack and roll trails. If you ski in Iron Horse – let us know how the trails are. Iron Horse access is drop off only – see the map on the BMNT page, NO parking is allowed and cars will be towed.
Notice about Fat Bikes:
Fat Bikes are not allowed on any of Glacier Nordic Club’s groomed trails at Whitefish Lake Golf Course and on Big Mountain on Winter Sports, Inc. land. On other trails please use best practices and do not ride if you sink in more that 1″ and yield to other users. Thank you for heeding this important notice.
Nordic ski options abound in the area. Each offers a unique experience. See our Other Trails in the Flathead Valley page to check out places to ski.
