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.

Remember when ski vacations were awesome? When you’d ditch the parents at the top of the first lift and spend the whole day pushing your own limits–a little faster, a little steeper, through trees a little bit tighter?

Red Lodge Mountain has always had its own kind of magic. In part it’s the small-town attitude. The no-wait lifts. The value priced lift tickets. But everyone who’s stood at the top of Grizzly Peak, looking west to the deep couloirs of Cole Creek, or east to the untracked paradise of Barriers, or straight down the 2 1/2 mile cruiser run of Lazy M knows, it’s more than any of that.

It’s riding the lift with locals who want to get to know you. It’s knowing the kids (or parents) are fine–wherever they are. It’s pausing halfway down Latigo, with views to the limestone palisades below and the Crazy Mountains beyond, and knowing without a doubt that “Right now, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”

It’s magic. And we’ve still got it.
