Celebrating New Years in the Flathead Valley

You won’t regret celebrating New Years in the Flathead Valley! Here are a few of the best ways to welcome in the new year around Flathead Lake: 

diagram1. Hit the Slopes for a Torchlight Parade

 Whitefish Montana Resort is a great place to spend New Years. You can ski or snowboard your way into 2024 under chairs 2, 3, and 6 where the runs will be lit up through 8:30pm. Don’t miss out on the parade and fireworks show starting at 5:30pm either! You can learn more about the day’s events and register to participate here

2. Welcome in the New Year at The Lodge

To welcome in the New Year in style, you’ll want to head to The Lodge at Whitefish Lake. This New Year’s Eve party is reminiscent of something you’d find in a much larger city. The event features diner (reserve ahead to secure your table), live music from 9pm-12am, plus a balloon drop and fireworks at midnight! Learn more on The Lodge at Whitefish Lake website.   

3. Plunge into 2024

Does celebrating New Year’s in the Flathead Valley feel incomplete without a trip to the lake? Well, don’t stop there— go ahead and get in! The Flathead Lake Polar Plunge at the Raven in Bigfork  is a surefire way to shock yourself out of that New Year’s Eve hangover. The event is free and t-shirts are available for purchase to commemorate your nerves of steel. 

4.Include Go Sail Flathead Lake in Your New Year’s Resolutions
