MISSOULA — Whitefish Mountain Resort experienced a power outage this morning, the resort released on Facebook.

The mountain is working on refunding anyone who purchased a lift ticket for the day. In the meantime, all uphill skiing and hiking is prohibited.
Updates are expected to come throughout the day.
