Mountain to open week early

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Following 80 inches of snow in October and winter conditions in early November, Red Lodge Mountain is preparing to open early for a bonus weekend Nov. 23 - 24.  As of today, Red Lodge Mountain plans to open the Triple Chair, Willow Creek, Miami Beach, and the Magic Carpet, but customers are encouraged check the snow report page on for any updates on lift and terrain openings. 

“We’re excited to start off our 60th season of operations with the snow to offer our guests an early weekend of skiing and riding” said Jeff Schmidt, Red Lodge Mountain’s General Manager. 

Full Food and Beverage service for the bonus weekend will be available in the Bierstube, with limited service in the Main Lodge. 

After the bonus weekend Red Lodge Mountain will be closed for the week of Thanksgiving so staff can enjoy time with their families. The mountain will re-open on Friday, November 29th for the normal 7-day-a-week operations and continue every day for the remainder of the season. For those willing to commit ahead of time, lift tickets at discounted prices can be found on the ski area’s website,
