The ceremony will take place on the summit, which requires riding a chairlift or gondola. You will need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to ride the chair lift up. The last lift will leave no later than 5:30 pm. If you miss this, you will miss the ceremony. You can ride up as early as 5 pm. There's a bar at the summit and amazing views! The gondolas are wheelchair accessible and fully enclosed. Please let us know if you'd like to ride in the gondola! We will have the alpine slide available during our cocktail hour, so come prepared to slide! https://skiwhitefish.com/alpine-slide/ For detailed information, see Whitefish Mountain Resort's website here: https://skiwhitefish.com/wedding-guest-information/
The airport is technically in Kalispell, MT, which is ~28 minutes from the mountain and ~15 minutes from the town of Whitefish!
Missoula is ~2.5 hours away from Whitefish, but is an absolutely beautiful drive up to Whitefish! The flights are also probably going to be less expensive. If you'll be in the area for a few days, definitely consider flying into Missoula and exploring around there! You will need to rent a car.

Whitefish is ~30 minutes from Glacier National Park. The mountains are amazingly beautiful, so definitely visit if you have the time!
Whitefish Lake is also beautiful, so if water is more your thing over mountains, we strongly recommend. Or do both!
There are countless amazing outdoor activities in the Whitefish area, as well as some fun restaurants and breweries. We recommend checking out the Explore Whitefish website to see what fits your vibe!
