THE NORDIC CENTER

NORDIC SKIING

RED LODGE NORDIC CENTER

GUIDELINES

BRTA promotes non-motorized winter recreation and transportation activities by leasing and operating the Red Lodge Nordic Center, located 2 miles west of Red Lodge off Highway 78.  We’ve laid out over 15K of groomed trails to take advantage of the inspiring views and easy-going nature of the terrain.  With a warming hut and restroom, this is a great place for families to get out and have some affordable fun!

Children's programs and ski clinics offered throughout the winter season. Touring skiers might want to kick it up a notch and learn skate skiing, a great exercise to maintain your fitness level through winter.  The prepared tracks for classic skiing and the skating lanes allow you to go as fast as your athleticism allows.

Grooming typically takes place on Saturday, Sunday & Monday.  Weather and conditions can change the grooming schedule so please refer to the Grooming Report for Nordic Center status

For directions, or information on fees, lessons, rental recommendations, and other area winter trails, use the menu on the left.

A few rules do apply at the Nordic Center to keep skiing enjoyable:  

  • No dogs allowed

  • No snowshoes

  • Please stay off ponds

  • Please pack out your garbage

  • No sledding

  • Do not touch fences (some are electric, ouch!)

West Fork Area

BRTA maintains the West Fork Road, a multi-use trail. West Fork is groomed on a weekly basis from Wild Bill Lake to Cascade Campground.  We ask that all users use the appropriate lanes for recreation:  skate ski, classic Nordic ski, fat bike, snow shoe, hiking, dog walking and some snowmobile use.

 

The West Fork does not require a fee for use; it is free in partnership with the Forest Service.  Donations can be made to the BRTA to help us maintain and groom the area.
