Sounds like a good deal to me! Can't wait for the pics, which board(s) you bringing?

Iron board for sure. Most people in the group are free riders.

Not sure what other board I want to take. May bust out the freestyle board as I met a Level III CASI freestyle coach last weekend. If I can get a 360 and some good butters out of this season it would be a bonus.

That is a good deal! We did the VRBO thing right on the hill, this is what we usually do. Heres the link we stayin @ Whitefish Mountain Vacation Rental - VRBO 337731 - 5 BR Whitefish House in MT, Renovated 5bed/5BA, Bunk Room, Hot Tub, Sauna, Ski-in/Ski-Out Access

The VRBO or web specials end up being a real bargain for Whitefish, typically you can do a 3-4 day ski weekend for 25% less than any of the Canadian resort comparables, assuming you are staying slopeside. The costco tickets are the way to go!

This is a fun place to be in the spring, lots of good crusing terrain, boardercross tracks and park hits, there is something for everyone. Though it is know for fog, all the spring days I have been have been nice and sunny.

The back side of the mountain has a decent amount of really mellow tree runs. You can't miss it really. Just go back there and ride into the trees.

Elephant's Graveyard has some of the best trees. A bit steeper though. Take the lift to the summit and take Inspiration Trail. Off off to the left you'll see the area for Elephant's Graveyard.

eidt: oops, I see some other posters have pointed you in the right direction. I was there last year and loved the place. Just ilke someone said make sure you bring a low light goggle lens. If the fog rolls in you can't see shit!
