About Red Lodge Mountain
Red Lodge Mountain's name comes from the heritage of colorful tepees that once dotted the area's foothills. Legend has it that the town of Red Lodge was named for the tepees' coloring of red clay. These dwellings beckoned early settlers to an area as unique as the symbol each family painted on its home. Red Lodge Mountain offers lots of powder, few crowds, nearby parking and no waiting in line. With an average snowfall of more than 250 inches during the ski season and a vertical drop of 2,400 feet, Red Lodge Mountain welcomes the beginner, intermediate and the advanced skier.
