Chet Hope is starting up this Saturday (the 14th)! We’ll be skiing Blanchard Lake where Jets are now practicing as well. There are 12″ of ice – very safe – please let your kids know that. There is no toilet at the site right now – so please have kids go before.
Directions: To the FW&P Public Fishing Access on Blanchard Lake – From Whitefish take either 7th Street or 2nd Street West to Karrow,turn south on Karrow, then right on Blanchard Lake Drive, (just south of the car repair shop), go the the dead end and park on the pavement. Walk down the access road to the Lake. The parking lot at the bottom only holds 6 or so cars and the road down is icy so please park above. Be careful walking down itis icy but there is gravel along the sides. PLEASE DO NOT LET KIDS SKI DOWN – THE GRAVEL WILL RUIN THE BASES..
Looks like snow is finally coming to Whitefish; hopefully we’ll be out on the Golf Course soon! For now, Blanchard is a wonderful option for us.
