Skiing in the Beartooth Mountains

Skiing in the Beartooth Mountains

Montana is located in the Western United States and is popularly known as the “Land of the Shining Mountains.” The economy in Montana is primarily based off ranching and agriculture, which is definitely different then the sources of revenue in cities such as Miami or New York. Montana is one of the fourth largest states in the United States with more than 100 mountains making up the states landscape. The unique topography of Montana makes it a ski and ranch lover’s dream come true.

If you are a huge skier then the mountains of Montana are for you. The Red Lodge International Summer Racing Camp, which is located near Red Lodge, Montana, offers race instructions/ opportunities in the summertime to high school, college and national team skiers. The camp takes place 23 miles Southwest of Red Lodge, Montana right near the Beartooth pass. The Beartooth Peak got its name from the jagged peak, which is found at the top of the mountain range and has been known to look like a bear’s tooth.

Whether you are already a pro skier or are still getting used to the sport, the Red Lodge International Summer Racing Camp has the right fit for you.

The camp was originally started in mid-1960 by Austrians and has expanded today to become one of the oldest training camps in the United States. Today the camp is owned by Kurt Hallok and Austin Hart and is co-owned by David Leuschen. May 23rd, 2015 is going to be the opening day this year for the Red Lodge International Summer Racing Camp! This summer’s calendar is booked through July with various races and competitions for the camp attendees to participate in.

“Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face,” said Dave Barry.
