We rode the train in from Seattle for a week of skiing at Whitefish. We had never been there before, so didn't really know what to expect.
The Kandahar lodge is located a short walk to the diminutive village at Whitefish, and has easy access onto and off of the ski slopes. Cross the parking lot, strap on your ski's and take a short cat track to chair 6, which then feeds you up to the base of the high speed quads that serve the mountain, coming down at the end of the day is just the reverse.
The room was clean and tidy with a large flat screen hd tv (which was handy for watching the olympics) the lobby was a great place to read over coffee and breakfast in the morning while the family continued to sleep.
The Kandahar Cafe is not really a cafe, but is a fine dining experience that is not to be missed. We had one of the very best meals that we have had in a very long time. Great wine selection, and the food was spectacular local fare (the elk and bison were both exquisite)
Off of the lobby is a very cozy and intimate little bar that is open in the evenings.
All in all it the Kandahar lodge was a key element of a wonderful family ski vacation.
