The resort prides itself in offering “no lift lines, no attitude, no big prices; just great snow, great people, and an authentic experience in Montana’s Rocky Mountains.” It is nestled against Montana’s highest peak in Custer National Forest. The annual snowfall is about 250 inches a season. Skiers have about 1,600 acres of accessible terrain to explore. Red Lodge Mountain is scheduled to close the ski season on April 16.
