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.

Conditions will get good at Red Lodge Nordic Center as this cold front freezes that old snow and Bob and groomer crews get it chopped and smoothed. As this photo shows, we have a solid base on the existing trails. And if we get any amount of new snow, we'll be smilin'!

Our TENTH annual (Winter Wildlands Alliance 12th annual)! Great films of human powered skiing, boarding, biking; some culture; some environmental awareness. Something for everyone to get stoked about. Great raffles, as usual. This is a fundraiser for BRTA.

This warm weather, day and night, makes for no grooming at the Nordic Center. And blown over trees and branches can't be picked up until the snow gets colder and harder so people can stand up out there! Maybe Sunday. (The toilets have been returned to their upright positions).
