to promote non-motorized trails along the Beartooth Front


We Need You

Since 2002, BRTA has developed trails and encouraged local nonmotorized recreation, thanks in part to grants and our fantastic volunteers. But especially as our operations grow, our annual budgets depend on contributions from the entire community of Red Lodge and the surrounding areas.


Any donation tremendously helps. If you'd like to help us out or give back, consider:

  • A $5,000 donation covers a year’s maintenance and repair on our grooming equipment.

  • A $1,000 donation pays for one day of trail work from a full Montana Conservation Corps crew.

  • An $800 donation pays a month of our lease at the Nordic Center.

  • A $700 donation allows us to purchase a season’s worth of new equipment for the kids’ XC ski rental program.

  • A $500 donation covers the costs of insurance and volunteer-appreciation gifts that we incur to do a Volunteer Trail Maintenance Day with a private landowner.

  • A $400 donation pays for a month’s worth of snowplowing to access XC skiing on the West Fork.

  • A $200 donation covers a month’s worth of oil and gas for our volunteer groomers.

  • A $100 donation pays for a free bicycle for a local child.

  • A $25 donation allows us to give a discounted rate to a senior citizen for an individual season pass to the Nordic Center.

BRTA is a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is tax deductible. The fastest way is to donate through the PayPal link below. You can also mail a check to PO Box 1872, Red Lodge Montana 59068. If you’d like to speak with a board member about donating, please email
