A few words on the Snow at Red Lodge Mountain Resort

Red Lodge has no detail snow data, so we estimate 200 inches snowfall, due to local reputation and the location leeward of the much higher Beartooth mountains. Red Lodge is expansive and remote so powder can last a long time.

Accumulation and Preservation

Red Lodge's early season accumulation is well below average due to modest snowfall and some steep terrain. Exposure is mostly north, so snow preserves very well in the cold climate. Red Lodge is most reliable in February and March.
