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.

For you die-hard XC skiers, there is skiing to be had at the Nordic Center. You just have to be willing to endure: a frozen parking lot in the morning, turning to mud later; and icy snow conditions early, turning to excellent crust cruising about noon (sometimes earlier). Yes, plenty of snow to cruise on to get your workout and thrills. Don't expect grooming but do look for birds migrating in, like bluebirds, red tailed hawks and these Canada geese looking for open water.

Plan to attend the Groomers Appreciation Party Monday, March 20, 5:30, back of the Pizza Co.
