We will not be able to post every change here. 

Retail businesses are required to establish, implement, and enforce social distancing policies to ensure a minimum of six feet between customers, effective March 28, 2020. This requirement does not apply to grocery, health care, medical, or pharmacy services, although they are also encouraged to comply with social distancing protocols if possible.

Read the 3-24-2020 Directive

During our suspension of operations, we have continued to work with State and Local Health Officials and in response to the quickly changing Coronavirus recommendations, we have made the decision to close Red Lodge Mountain for the remainder of the 2019/20 Winter season.

During Governor Bullock’s Stay-at-Home order, we at Red Lodge Mountain are strongly advising against uphill travel at our ski area.  Please know that your choice to come up could put others at risk and potentially put unnecessary strain on our local emergency services. 

Please note:

  • The Hancock Hut is closed until further notice. 
  • The base area at RLM is private property. No loitering or congregating in the parking lots or deck areas. 
  • There are no bathrooms or facilities available.
  • The use of snowmobiles, snow machines, Timber sleds, ATV’s, or any other motorized vehicles is prohibited at all times. 
  • Uphill travel is at your own risk. Potential hazards could include, but are not limited to, avalanches, road cuts, unmarked man-made and natural hazards. There will be no first aid or rescue services available from Red Lodge Mountain. In the event of an emergency, please call 911, and know that calling EMS could compromise already thin resources during this pandemic. 

We strongly value the safety and wellbeing of our skiers, riders, and local communities. We all must do our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and keep this community asset available for safe future use. 

Please stay tuned to our website for any changes and future updates. 

Thanks!

The Custer Gallatin National Forest has taken some proactive and precautionary steps that are essential to ensure the safety and long-term viability of the workforce and our mission delivery. This includes following public health recommendations concerning “social distancing” and reducing Coronavirus exposure to both employees and the public. We intend to limit public and employee exposure and risk by closing the developed facilities on the Custer Gallatin National Forest including rental cabins, campgrounds, and picnic areas through April 30. Fortunately, most campgrounds on the Beartooh Ranger District do not open until May and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll all be in better place by that time.
