Red Lodge Mountain

The Last Best Place in Montana - Join Us!


Red Lodge Mountain is Montana Skiing, pure and simple. No lift lines, no attitude, no big prices. Just great snow, great people, and an authentic experience in Montana's Rocky Mountains. 


Red Lodge Mountain

Would you like to live, work, and play in a ski town where everyone will know your name by the end of the season? Red Lodge Mountain is one of Montana’s largest ski areas, but it doesn’t have the elitist attitude or high prices that ski resorts across the west have become known for.

With about 250 inches of snowfall per year and an average of 202 days of sunshine, working at Red Lodge Mountain is as good as it gets. Our skiers and riders think of us as their hometown ski resort, wherever they’re from. 

Just 6 miles from downtown Red Lodge, the area boasts over 70 trails, including mellow cruisers, steep chutes, and two terrain parks. Not to mention beautiful views of five mountain ranges spreading across Montana and Wyoming. 

Red Lodge Mountain opens the day after Thanksgiving and closes the second Sunday in April.

For Fun

Sunny Powder Day

Red Lodge, Montana is the kind of place that feels like home the moment you arrive.

Where the person you sit with on your first chairlift ride of the day becomes your best friend, and either runs into you at dinner that night, or is the one taking your dinner order. 

In Red Lodge, “ski bum” is an ideal, not an insult. Winter sports abound and include alpine/telemark skiing, cross-country skiing, backcountry and summer skiing, hockey, and ice climbing.

The town of Red Lodge maintains an outdoor skating rink with a fledgling hockey league. In the summer there are adult softball leagues and organized soccer for the kids.

Located on the edge of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, the surrounding area offers hiking and backcountry trails galore. Fishing, golfing, kayaking, biking, and trail running opportunities are endless.
