This is a town built on the personalities, charm and wisdom of its local residents who work hard and play harder. Every winter the hearty residents band together to welcome visitors with celebrations like the Whitefish Winter Carnival, complete with a home-town parade, penguin plunge, yetis, vikings, snow sculptures, and non-stop parties. Horses and skiers unite in the Ski Joring races that illustrate the cross-over of the Old West with modern-day adventures.
The Stumptown (Whitefish) Historical Society was founded in 1982 by a group of individuals committed to preserving the history of Whitefish, Montana and the Flathead Valley for the present and future. Since its inception the Society has grown with members from all parts of the USA and Canada.
