I was given the opportunity to travel to Whitefish, MT to try out the 2019 Honda Pilot and explore a little bit of Glacier National Park. It was my first time ever being in that part of Montana so I was stoked to check it out. The trip was quick and beautiful, and the new Pilot was a ton of fun to drive.
Our first day there we headed out early in the morning towards the park. It had snowed fairly recently, and so the roads were icy. The Pilot handled all of it with ease, and the high clearance allowed us to push through unplowed areas. The first stop on the tour was Lake McDonald, and it was beautiful even with the weather socking in the mountains.
From there we went to test the capabilities of the traction system. We got to a steep off-road hill with a decent bit of snow and set off up it. The Pilot made it to the top with ease, and back down again with no problem.
After that we headed back to Whitefish for the night. Seeing the park was awesome, even just for a day. Later that night we hopped on a bus and went to the HGTV Dream Home up in the surrounding hills. The house was beautiful, and had an incredible view of the valley below for sunset. Dinner was phenomenal and it topped off the trip perfectly.
It was an awesome experience all around with the perfect mix of food (my favorite), mountains (also my favorite) and a really good driving experience, which I don’t get too often due to how much time I spend on the road.
