Whitefish Sustainable Tourism Management Plan


The City of Whitefish has been a leader in tourism management in mountain towns because we recognize that one of the most important aspects of our economy can also be a detriment to those living here. The Sustainable Tourism Management Committee asks residents and stakeholders to take this 5-minute survey to assist us in updating our plan that was established in 2019.

Survey open August 1-September 15, 2023

Over the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people spending time in Whitefish, especially during the peak summer season. There is concern that too much visitation will diminish the quality of life that the community values and that visitors find so attractive. The purpose of this Plan is to promote sustainable community-based tourism development that is beneficial to community members, employees, and visitors.

This Plan relies on community input to identify fundamental values that underlie plan recommendations. These values are expressed as the three key pillars.
