Winter Season Looks Promising

Posted: Updated:
RED LODGE -

Red Lodge business owners are hopeful a successful winter season is upon us, even after a questionable Summer season full of construction and a widespread wildfire.

"What we really count on is good snow. When the ski mountain is busy, we're all busy," says Kathy Robson, Red Lodge Chamber of Commerce Board Member.

And so far, the season looks promising.

"If this current snow is any indication of the season to come, it's going to be a good one. We've seen 40 inches of snow so far in October," says Jeff Carroll, Director of Sales and Marketing at Red Lodge Mountain Resort.

The ski resort hosts many events that bring people in from all over, everything from the Annual Winter Carnival to the Airbag Demo Tour.

"All of these events are really good for everyone in Red Lodge because they bring people up for the snow and the snow events, but the restaurants and the hotels and the downtown businesses," says Robson.

And the Red Lodge Chamber of Commerce is doing more this year to make it an even more successful tourist season.

"We've always promoted big in Cody and Billings and we're going a little further out now trying to get people to come in for the weekends," says Robson. "With all the good snow we've been getting already before the ski mountain even opens, we are very, very excited for the Winter."

The Red Lodge Ski Resort is still scheduled to open on time the day after Thanksgiving, November 29th.
