Glacier Nordic Run at Big Mountain

By Beacon Staff

Join us for our annual run up Big Mountain and help a good cause. This is a fundraiser for the Flathead Valley’s Glacier Nordic Ski Team. Participants may walk, hike or run the Danny On Trail. The trail is 3.8 miles and climbs 2,200 vertical feet. The course will use this popular hiking trail, which begins in the Upper Village of Whitefish Mountain Resort on Big Mountain. The course races up the Danny On to the Big Mountain Summit. Only event participants will be allowed to ride the lift down for free, otherwise day passes are available. For more details visit our Web site Glacier Nordic Club.
