Big mountain skiing and snowboarding awaits anyone who visits this Montana ski resort above the town of Red Lodge, Montana.Despite the great, authentic, and unspoiled skiing, the resort has remained down to earth, avoiding much of the glitz and glamour that overtakes many Rockies ski resorts.
The mountain itself has 73 trails and two terrain parks- one that’s for beginners and one for the more seasoned. Within the overall acreage, Red Lodge has 30 acres of advanced chutes and 1,600 acres in the pristine Custer National Forest.
Beginner’s terrain takes up 14% of the mountain, 29% is intermediate and 57% is rated as expert.
Eight lifts service the 9,416 foot high mountain; one triple, two high-speed quads, four doubles and one handle tow. Don’t miss the view of seven mountain ranges from the Grizzly Peak Chair when you’re there! “Lazy M” is Red Lodge Mountain signature and longest trail, at 2.5 miles long.
Red Lodge Mountain Resort receives 250 inches of snow annually, making over 60 acres of glades terrain possible. The resort also has the largest snowmaking capacity in the Northern Rockies, with 31% of the trails completely covered.
The mountain doesn’t just have great skiing- it is also a great value. Compare to other Rockies resorts and you’ll see the difference in the price!
Ski lessons are available for the whole family, including a separate children’s program for tykes from three to twelve-years-old.
The town of Red Lodge is a fun winter playground as well. Stay in one of the great Montana hotels to have easy access to all the area attractions. Just because its a down to earth town, doesn’t mean there aren’t great restaurants and bars. Check out the eateries after the slopes to throw down a delicious Montana microbrew!
It was named one of “The 10 Best Ski Towns” in 2009 by Mountain Sports + Living Magazine, one of the 30 best places to live and play by Outside Magazine, and was featured in National Geographic Adventure as one of the US’s “Top Adventure Towns.”
