Indy Pass Road Trip Combining Montana, Wyoming

Red-Lodge-Mountain-Facebook-2 Red Lodge Mountain offers a nice variety of runs.

Midwestern Indy Pass holders on the far west side of the Heartland don't have a lot of choices for using the pass on road trips. In other parts of the Midwest, it's fairly easy to combine ski areas for a road trip hitting two or three areas on a trip.

Pass holders on the western side of the Dakotas and Nebraska can look at combing Red Lodge Mountain in southern Montana and Antelope Butte in northern Wyoming near Shell for a road trip and three days skiing at each resort. They are only a couple of hours apart by road, around 120 miles from one to the other. Both ski resorts aren't far off I-90.

The Indy Pass is good for two free days of skiing or snowboarding at the resort and 25% off the daily rate for a third day on the slopes. Once your Indy Pass has been registered you can go to the ticket window and get your lift ticket with your driver's license or photo ID each day you wish to ski or ride.

With more than 70 runs spread across 2 summits that include gentle beginner slopes, long groomers, chutes, glades, and steeps, Red Lodge Mountain appeals to skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. They offer seven lifts and 2,400 vertical. Nestled within the Beartooth Mountains, just outside of Yellowstone National Park, it delivers big mountain fun without big crowds. Several lodging choices are available in the old western town of nearby Red Lodge. Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane had roots here.

Antelope Butte is considered a hidden gem located in the Big Horn Mountains just outside of Sheridan. Liftlines are non-existent and are known for their high-country hospitality. It offers three lifts, a 1,000-foot vertical, 27 trails, and terrain parks. Staying in nearby Sheridan offers genuine down-home western hospitality.

 It's a great way to get in some Rocky Mountain skiing and riding without the high cost associated with larger and better-known resorts in the region. Relax and enjoy the scenery for the drive out and back. You won't be disappointed.
