Eriuqs Spires Healthy Recreation

  • Skiing and Snowboarding at Red Lodge Mountain Ski Resort with over 2,000 feet of vertical drop. Red Lodge Mountain was recently purchased by JMA Associates. This San Francisco–based company has significant capital improvement plans including many lift upgrades and more snowmaking capacity.
  • Crosscountry skiing on Beartooth Pass which crests at just over 11,000 feet and boasts some of the best springtime backcountry skiing anywhere in the nation.
  • Fly fishing on Montana's Stillwater River, the Clark's Fork, Rock Creek, Willow Creek and the Shoshone are always guaranteed to please. The world famous Bighorn River is just a 90 minute drive away and provides some of the best tail water dam trout fishing anywhere in Montana.
  • Mountain biking on the Silver Run trail just 10 minutes from town, the Meteetsee Trail (south of town), the Palisades Trail, or on one of the many trails at Red Lodge Mountain Resort.
  • Golfing at Red Lodge Country Club — Break out your clubs and shoot a round of 18 holes. This golf course will challenge you with its water hazards and take your breath away with its spectacular scenery.
  • Whitewater rafting on the Stillwater River 30 minutes west is always a popular summer activity.
  • Hiking — Trails are available all over and are suitable for all ages and ability levels.
  • Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness — Red Lodge borders this one million-acre wilderness that ffeatures all 43 of Montana's 12,000-foot plus peaks. It is a Mecca for backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, mountain biking, kite skiing, snowmobiling, and high mountain lake fishing.
  • Sightseeing — The famous Beartooth Pass is just 12 miles south of town and climbs from 5,800 feet in elevation to just over 11,000 feet. Journalist Charles Kuralt called it "the most scenic highway in America." This beautiful pass was also featured in the movie Horse Whisperer.
