If you're having trouble containing your excitement, don't worry, you're not alone. Unfortunately, travel to Red Lodge Mountain is not recommended due to slick conditions on Ski Run Road. You'll have to wait a little longer before you can hit the mountain and take advantage of all of the fresh powder.

Red Lodge Mountain will officially open for the 23-24 season the Friday after Thanksgiving. If you're thinking about making a trip this season, here's a brief description of the resort.

Nestled within the Beartooth Mountains, Red Lodge Mountain delivers big mountain fun without the big crowds or big prices.  We prize great skiing and great people over glitz and glamour and nowhere is that more evident than in our diverse mix of terrain and friendly staff. But most of all we believe that on a powder day, you should be free to seek out your own secret stash.  Because you shouldn’t have to settle for the first tracks when you can enjoy the first, second, and third tracks. Red Lodge Mountain is Montana skiing, pure and simple.
