Add to Calendar 3/8/2019 3/10/2019 America/Denver National Finals Ski-Joring Races It's WINTER FUN, WESTERN STYLE! The Red Lodge Ski-Joring Association has been hosting the National Finals Ski-Joring Races since 1980. Ski-Joring originated in Scandinavian countries as a form of winter transportation.
The west has transformed this into an action packed competition wherein teams of horse, rider and skier negotiate a 700+ foot course, the horse and rider taking a track to the inside of the course while the skier in tow, negotiates 20-some slalom gates and four jumps in hopes of completing two fast, clean runs. That isn’t so easy at speeds sometimes topping 25 mph.

Add to Calendar 6/16/2019 6/22/2019 America/Denver 2019 Summer Shredfest With some of the continent’s steepest in-bounds terrain and virtually no infrastructure, Beartooth Basin is the only summer-specific ski area in North America. There’s no warming hut or anything resembling a lodge. Two porta-potties that sway in the mountain wind serve as restrooms. A generator supplies electricity for the two minimalist lifts, which pull skiers and snowboarders up the glacier-carved Twin Lakes Headwall.
In June of 2017, Beartooth Basin and the Mountain Rider’s Alliance will host the 3rd annual Summer Shredfest. Skiers participate in a freeride competition to see who could ski the most daring line down the mountain.
Complete schedule coming soon.

Add to Calendar 7/13/2019 7/13/2019 America/Denver 51st Annual Beartooth Run The Beartooth Run is Montana's classic hill climb road race, and this year, it has a 10K course at 10,000-ft elevation on the top of the scenic Beartooth Pass. The new "10 at 10" course (see map) showcases awesome views from the top of Line Creek Plateau, including the prominent Bear's Tooth, which the area was named after. Along with its amazing vistas, this course is all above 10,000 feet, making it one of the highest road races in the United States. Runners can choose between a 5K and 10K distance.

This is one of Montana's finest road races with it's amazing views and challenging course. Though we encourage all runners to strive to challenge themselves, you'll find that the 10k at 10,000 isn't your typical community "fun run." Note that there isn't a walking category, (though many runners end up walking) and that there is a time limit on this race of 1 hour at 50 minutes.

With a September date, your summer of running and racing will be what prepares you for this "battle royal" event. Though all distances are based on a full marathon, you don't have to do it alone! Form a six, or three runner relay team to tackle the event, or if you have the grit, solo away for a full 26.2 miles! The Nitty Gritty is a tough race with a the flair of a festival. After your run, you can relax at your team's camp in the resort's base lodge courtyard while you enjoy music and food, get to know other runners and plan out next year's race schedule.
