Hood or Whistler was the only place you go to get your summer shred on. Well all of that has changed because this Sunday, May 26th Beartooth Basin will be Open. Formerly a private ski and snowboard camp, Beartooth Basin is now open to the public. That’s right! Now you don’t have to drive all way to the west coast to go snowboarding or skiing  in the summer.

Beartooth Basin is located in the Rocky Mountains about 20 miles south of Red Lodge, MT on Highway 212, near the famous Beartooth Pass.  Tickets are $45  for a Full Day, $35 for a Half Day and $20 for a Power Hour
