Flower Point Project To Begin At Whitefish Mountain Resort
A $1.4 million investment signals the go-ahead for what’s known as the Flower Point Project on the north side of Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana. The project calls for a new lift, runs, and glades.
The expansion will add some 200 acres of lift-served skiing and riding, including 32 acres of cleared runs, gladed areas, and a fixed-grip triple chair. The project will be developed in two phases and will be completed in time for the 2014-15 winter season.
“We are delighted to begin work on the Flower Point lift and trail system this summer and provide lift access to more terrain, said Dan Graves, resort president. “The lift increases access to an area of our mountain known for having the most consistent snow coverage and will provide quality skiing in early and late season.”
The first phase includes purchase of the lift, Timber clearing will begin mid-summer and should be completed by fall. Concrete work for the towers may also be finished this summer. The towers and terminal will erected in summer 2014.
The additional acreage is located within the resort’s special use permit area, but has been considered out-of-bounds to guests. It will remain that way until the project is completed.
