Seasons in Whitefish

As the very earliest signs of spring start to emerge it reminds me how beautifully diverse the four seasons are in Whitefish...

Hot (but not too hot) summers with bright blue skies, white fluffy clouds and crisp green landscapes. Every day greats you with a bright sunrise and says goodnight with a colorful sunset that lights up the sky. Your first view of the summer sky will explain why we are the Big Sky State.

In fall the hills are ablaze with golden lodge pole pines and bald eagles are abundant. Photographers come from a great distance just to capture the foliage. The air is crisp and cool and the skies are a deeper blue.

The trees have just started turning near a local ranch.

Whitefish is a true winter wonderland where there is always a fresh layer of snow blanketing the ground and lining every tree. The bright blue skies pop against the white terrain. Whitefish literally buzzes with the excitement of ski season and all the fun to be had.

And lastly, but not least, spring. The wildlife wakes up, trees fill back in with leaves and the flowers begin to bloom. The ground turns a rich green as far as you can see and just the right number for spring showers fall.

My favorite time of year, when the grass is green, skies are blue and snow-capped mountains fill the distance.

If you didn't notice there is a theme to our seasons: big blue skies! We are blessed to enjoy them year round! No matter the reason, no matter the season, a memory is always waiting to be made in Whitefish.
