Whitecap Mountain

  We just got back from Whitecap, and it was awesome! Lots of new snow for us and our family who snowmobiles. We stayed right on the hill at Kastenbole, a privately owned chalet we found on the internet. It was a perfect destination. Says Roxy Bisson.

'There arenít any places to stay close by, but if you're ok to travel a short distance then no problem, and if you make reservations previous to going, you're all set.''† I'm not sure when this was last updated,
    but there is a hotel right on the ski hill as well as condos and other group rental places.† You literally ski right out of your door!† Favorite place to ski/snowboard, it's a HUGE resort yet it's never super busy so no lines or danger
of running into others!† My family owns Mountain Meadows 1 (one of the condos at the top of the bunny hill) and we go as much as we can!† Excellent family resort and very very friendly workers. We've been going here for years.† We're from the Twin Cities and it's only about a 3.5 hour drive for us!† Great location and tucked away. GREAT GET AWAY FROM REALITY SPOT!† Says Ashley.
