Welcome to the Beartooth Recreational Trails Association


The Beartooth Recreational Trails Association (BRTA) was organized in 2002 to:

1) continue operations of the Red Lodge Nordic Center (RLNC);

2) promote non-motorized trails in Red Lodge and along the Beartooth Front.

We work  with the Forest Service, the City of Red Lodge, Carbon County, private land owners and other organizations to create and maintain trails. We have attracted many supporters and are an official 501(c)3 non-profit.  We rely on your donations, and they are tax deductible.

Attend one of our FUNdraising events and support BRTA to keep Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, hiking,  biking, and horseback riding priorities in our community!

Check out our EVENTS page to see what we have scheduled and what related organizations are doing.

Nordic update: As of yesterday our thin cover of snow was holding, however today’s wind may have changed things a bit. We can’t use our groomers on a base that is this thin so until it snows more it is what it is. Yesterday both classic and skate skiing were possible.

The recent warm sunny days have melted most of our early snow, so I guess we wait for the next snowfall before we can groom and ski again at the NC

Tues. Nov. 21

A skiff of new snow was groomed out on all trails this morning. We’re hoping to keep some snow groomed out through the Thanksgiving Holiday, however, it’s difficult to maintain good tracks in these conditions. The skating looks to be very good this morning and that should continue if we have enough snow on the trails to scratch up with the groomer. Keep in mind that warm wet snow can’t be worked with, so we’ll need cold nights to keep up our grooming schedule.
