Red Lodge

Publish date:

A scant 65 miles from Billings, Montana's largest city, Red Lodge beckons with 1,600 acres of terrain and 2,400 feet of vertical. With no mountain passes to negotiate and the historic and charming old mining town of Red Lodge just four miles from the slopes, skiers and riders from Billings and its satellite towns keep the scene lively.
