Well, like most of the rockies, our beloved Bridger range has not been up to par lately, so we travelled East to Red Lodge Mountain. The ski area had never really been on our radar, but anything seemed better than riding our tails through grass and rocks. What we found blew us away. Not only was there a solid base but a healthy layer of fresh as well. The days alternated between storm and sun, with more and more snow falling and cold temps keeping it fluffy.
The nightlife in and of itself was worth the trip. Out and about for the Christmas Stroll, we met all sorts of local barflies and legends and even took turns challenging a champion leg wrestler on the floor of the Snow Creek Saloon. One sexy Barmaid made a point of singing and dancing to Afroman’s “Cause I Got High” for Axel.
Local shredder, Justin Modroo took us under his wing and lead us on a dawn patrol in the Palisades area our last day. All in all we enjoyed four unexpectedly epic days of snorkeling the Great Beartooth Reef and found a gem of a ski town.
Special thanks to Anjin for helping with the edit, and to Paul and Jeff at Red Lodge Mountain for the epic days of shred.
