Sledding: Hills, Chills and Thrills

Around these parts, sledding is a favorite past time and annual winter ritual, much like building snowmen and making snow angels. When you're here, you better get in on the fun and grab a sled, tube or toboggan and make a break for the nearest hill. All across Glacier Country, you'll find popular sledding hills. In addition, many resorts have sledding and tobogganing activities available for their guests.

Located on the shores of pristine Flathead Lake, KwaTaqNuk Resort offers year-round specials and entertainment, whether you're here for the casino, watersports or skiing.
