Add to Calendar 1/29/2022 1/29/2022 America/Denver Live at Jimmy's Roadhouse: Jessica Eve Jessica Eve Lechner, an alum of the Jaded Ladies and winner for three consecutive years of Best Female Vocalist at the Magic City Music Awards, pours her heart out on her all-original material. She sings ballads, soft rockers, some country-rock, and a folk song or two in a nimble voice that has an appealing timbre in the mid-range register. One of her stylistic trademarks is to bend notes and elongate phrases, which she does gracefully! Jimmy's Roadhouse

Add to Calendar 2/5/2022 2/5/2022 America/Denver "Torn" at the Roman Theater On Oct. 5, 1999, legendary climber Alex Lowe was tragically lost alongside cameraman and fellow climber David Bridges in a deadly avalanche on the slopes of the Tibetan mountain, Shishapangma. Miraculously surviving the avalanche was Alex’s best friend and climbing partner, renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker. After the tragedy, Anker and Alex’s widow, Jennifer, fell in love and married, and Anker stepped in to help raise Alex’s three sons.

Torn will deliver a profoundly intimate look at the Lowe-Anker family using never-before-released archival footage of the ill-fated 1999 expedition, early footage of Alex and Anker as young climbers, personal home videos and strikingly candid interviews with the Lowe-Ankers, the film will follow Max in his quest to understand his iconic late father as he explores family’s complex relationships in the wake of his father’s death.

With Special Guest Max Lowe, Movie Maker and director of TORN

Add to Calendar 3/11/2022 3/13/2022 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 8/20/2022 8/20/2022 America/Denver The Nitty Gritty Off Road Race We’ve moved the race up a few weeks to reduce conflicts with other events. This off-road marathon will be held at Red Lodge Mountain Resort. In its sixth year running, the Nitty Gritty is starting to earn quite the reputation. And that is, that its, one nitty, gritty marathon with LOTS of climbing all on dirt roads and single track trails.

With a September date, your summer of running and racing will be what prepares you for this “battle royal” event. Form a six, three or two runner relay team to tackle the marathon, or if you have the grit, try the solo hot lap, half, or full marathon!

The Nitty Gritty embodies our motto the most out of any race: low key, high elevation. While the terrain is challenging, everything else is lowkey and there is distance for all abilities. Dogs are welcome to run with you on or off leash, the beer and snacks might be the biggest draw….second only to the awesome people! Small but mighty, this race is for those who love trail running and everything that comes with it! Bring your bear spray, camp chair, and good attitude.

So lay the peer pressure on your friends, because its time to get down to The Nitty Gritty!

While the event is free, we ask that all participants consider making a donation to BareTooth Cupboards. You can do this buy donating when you register, or bringing a cash or check donation -all amounts are welcome and no gift is too small.
