The Legacy of Mully’s Moguls

Look around Whitefish, and you’re bound to come across the name Muldown. There’s Muldown Elementary. Ed and Mully’s Bar & Restaurant on the mountain. Mully’s Moguls, Mully’s, Upper Mully’s — all runs at Whitefish Mountain Resort. Without even picking up a history book, one knows instantly that Lloyd “Mully” Muldown made an impact here.    Truth be told, Mully is often referred to the “Father of Skiing” for his involvement and enthusiasm in the early days of Whitefish Mountain Resort. To dig deeper into this legend, we turned to Mike Muldown—Mully’s son—to tell us a bit more about his father and the…

Soaking up simplicity — One of the best hikes in Whitefish

One of the things that worried me most about moving into an off-the-grid yurt in Montana was time.  It would take us more time to access our home. It would take us more time to do dishes by hand.

Top 5 Reasons to Ski Whitefish Mountain Resort

December 9, 2013

It’s official. I wrapped up my first “Opening Weekend” at Whitefish Mountain Resort. For those who don’t speak ski-town, that’s code for “the weekend the resort opens.” Unlike Sean, Whitefish is the first resort town I’ve ever lived in. He’s lived in Steamboat Springs, Whistler, and grew up in Southern California, near resorts like Mountain High and Big Bear. Me? I grew up on Nordic Mountain—a whopping 265 vertical feet of sweet Wisconsin “powder.” (Emphasis on the quotes.) Whitefish Mountain Resort’s 2,305 vertical feet provide a bit of an upgrade as my “home mountain.” The entire mountain was open for the…
