Santa is a skier, too. Between Dec. 22-25, kiddos can ride with the big guy in red and white, they can get photographic evidence to bring back to classmates once winter break is over. And yes, the mountain is open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Portland-based ON3P Skis want skeptics to test their products for free on Red Lodge slopes, Dec 22-23. Interested skiers should bring an ID and meet at the Base Area.

Red Lodge Mountain skiers are in a league of their own. No, really. The community ski/snowboard racing league, the Town Series Races, runs every Friday at 10 a.m. from Jan. 11 to Feb. 15. Each coed team is a mix of four to six skiers, tele skiers and snowboarders that traverse a changing layout on the mountain’s beginner run, Bobcat.

Lifts open at 9 a.m. and close between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., daily. Additional information, including pricing, is available at redlodgemountain.com.
