Don't despair, your ski days are not as limited as you may think. ON3P is back with the Beartooth Summer Session for the third year in a row.

The Beartooth Summer Session is a multi-day, summer freeskiing event and big-mountain/slopestyle competition. Set to occur Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 to Sunday, June 9th, 2013, the event will take place at Beartooth Basin Ski Area (formerly Red Lodge International Summer Ski Camp). Located on the Montana/Wyoming border, Beartooth Basin Ski Area features two high-speed poma lifts, steeps, chutes, cornices, and a terrain park, offering a summer skiing experience unlike any other in North America.

The big-mountain/slopestyle competition will take place Saturday, June 8th, 2013, and includes both amateur and pro divisions skiing top-to-bottom laps on a course featuring everything from cornice drops to park jumps and rails.

ON3P will have skis available for a free demo that is open to the public. Lift tickets will be available for only $40 to session attendees.

Why You Should Ski the Beartooth Pass

All the beta you need to enjoy this perfect summer skiing destination

Trip Ideas: Beartooth Pass

Montana's backcountry is the perfect springtime spot for a week of shredding.

Start off in Durango, where you can raft the Animas or hike the start of the Colorado trail. Hit Bread bakery for cookies and danishes before you head out of town.View Durango to Telluride in a larger mapYou can take the train from Durango to Silverton, but you can also drive over Molas Pass. In Silverton, mountain bike at the ski resort, or hike in the San Juans. Lodging and dining options are slim, but you should probably drink beers at Miners Tavern. The stretch of highway 550 from Red Mountain Pass to Ouray is called the Million Dollar Highway, because of the millions of dollars in gold and silver miners expected to find. It’s also got million dollar views (zing.) Ouray is known for ice climbing, but in summer there’s good local rock climbing too. Head out of Ouray towards Ridgway and descend out of the mountains for a while.  Stop for a soak at the Orvis Hot Springs. The thrift store on the corner where you turn towards Telluride can be a gold mine for vintage bikes. Drive up the canyon to Telluride. On summer weekends, it’s not hard to time it right so you hit a festival, like Blues and Brews, or the Telluride Film Festival.  In the morning head to the Steaming Bean for people watching and the best blueberry muffins in the world. At night, get Thai food at Siam, drinks at There, and your swerve on at the Llama.
