In , a beautiful new base lodge was constructed below the existing Village, making this the main point of entry to the resort. Beginners and intermediates have much to choose from at Whitefish. The Base Lodge and Easy Rider chairs offer excellent beginners-only terrain, while the runs get more difficult as you move up further on the mountain — both Tenderfoot and Chair 2 offer fun intermediate trails and a ride to the top on the Summit Express accesses black and double black runs that end in a long road back to the base area.
Whitefish also offers night skiing on its lower lifts, one of only two mountains in the state to do so. Most advanced skiers head to the backside of Whitefish for the steepest terrain. The Hellroaring area offers cliffs, chutes and tight tree skiing. Chair 7 on the north side also accesses some great black diamond runs and a few blues, a great place to do laps on a powder day because a high-speed quad will take you right back up to the summit. Intrepid skiers with backcountry knowledge can also hike to the top of Hellroaring Peak and then enter back into the ski area.
These turn into beautiful, contorted ghost-like figures, making tree skiing at Whitefish one of the coolest experiences in the state. The characters are engaging and far-ranging. They await your discovery as they strive to survive in style on Sanibel Island, the nation's Last Best Resort. Life on Sanibel Island is an anomaly - an artificial attempt to live the life that went before.
Most people on the island are not deluded, just determined to preserve some semblance of "civilization. For some, the island is a base of operations; for others, the better of poor choices for hanging on to a vanishing lifestyle.
Some of these characters will grow, becoming wiser, more mature, self confident, change agents, and simple decent people. Some will leave; some will die. John Standridge, M.
