In 2017 we built SNOW BEAR CHALETS, the World’s 1st Ski-in/Ski-out treehouses, located slopeside at Whitefish Mountain. Since then, we’re grateful to have hosted hundreds of families from around the world, growing our Snow Bear family. Some of our guests love SNOW BEAR so much that they have returned three or four times already since their first visit.

Yet, with all of our guests, we’ve only received three complaints, and no matter who the guest is, where they’re from or what season they visit, the complaints are always the same:

  1. We didn’t stay long enough!
  2. The photos online don’t do Snow Bear justice!
  3. We want to be able to bring more than 22 friends with us!

We heard you and we have solutions! We’re happy to help you increase the time for your next trip, by offering Buy 6 nights, get the 7th night free! Just book a week and you’ll only be charged for 6 nights.

We’re continually working on new photos and videos, but as many of you already know, it’s so difficult to capture the feeling of a vacation with us. Nothing beats being here for yourself to experience the magic of SNOW BEAR!

Also, for the last two years we’ve thought long and hard about the best way to grow SNOW BEAR in the right way, to accommodate more guests without losing any of the magic that makes SNOW BEAR what it is. Conveniently, we also own the adjacent property to SNOW BEAR CHALETS, located on Gelande Street, down below the chalets. After extensive market research, we are so proud to announce a new expansion at SNOW BEAR, and introduce you to….


N W Corner 1

New ski-in / ski-out slopeside luxury vacation residences at Whitefish Mountain Resort, featuring mountain modern design and dramatic vista views.

THE RESIDENCES AT SNOW BEAR present a rare combination of location, design, layouts, and features never before combined within a single property — direct ski lift access, expansive outdoor decks with private hot tubs, and unique floor plans with ski slope and mountain views from every unit.  Seven luxury vacation residences are now available for booking, starting December 2020.

Following the lead of the highly acclaimed SNOW BEAR CHALETS, the interiors will be consistent with the flavor of the buildings’ exteriors and are focused on mountain modern design with generous use of native natural materials.

From the moment you arrive, THE RESIDENCES AT SNOW BEAR will reward you with experience after experience. This amenity-rich property includes a fitness center, ski locker room, and private, reserved underground parking with private guest storage for each rental unit. To provide exceptional service, THE RESIDENCES AT SNOW BEAR will also be professionally managed by Montana Bear Properties, just like SNOW BEAR CHALETS. You’ll have the benefit of on-site management, as the owner, Gail Goodwin, CPM, and her husband will reside in unit 7 as their primary residence.

The RESIDENCES feature mountain modern design with a touch of whimsy, with the same beautiful aesthetic and luxurious features you’ve come to expect and appreciate at SNOW BEAR CHALETS.

Now, with the addition of THE RESIDENCES, we’ll be able to accommodate 80 people at SNOW BEAR, making us the perfect spot for large family gatherings, weddings, special occasions, corporate retreats, and ski clubs. If you’re interested in a group rate for 80 people, please just let us know your dates and we’ll be happy to help you create a memorable holiday for your group!

Until completion, you can follow the construction progress at THE RESIDENCES AT SNOW BEAR. We look forward to sharing it with you soon!
