In Whitefish, make it your job to Recreate Responsibly. When you explore, be prepared for anything, and also have a backup plan. Know your limits and your gear. Slow down and plan ahead so you can reduce your risk of injury.
When you do explore, bring ample food and water on your adventures. Leave no trace and extinguish all campfires. Bring rain gear and warm layers in case the weather turns, because it will. We’ve seen snowfall in July.
Flexibility with your adventures is the right state of mind. That’s part of the fun, never quite knowing what might be around the next bend. Figure out your route before you go, but have a backup plan in case your first adventure isn’t possible.
You’ll be happier if you do your research, make a good plan, and then plan for a change. Hit the day running with an extra water bottle, food, and some bear spray on hand. You might also wait for fall, winter or spring to visit us so you can experience our natural beauty with less crowds.
We all need to step up our game and recreate responsibly. More than ever, we need your commitment in this. Help us decrease the demand on our first responders and health care workers and encourage others to do the same.
Safety first. Adventure second. That’s the game we are playing. In town, on the trail or on the slopes.
