Just posted their website on my wife's FB page -hahahaha! She refuses to give up summer vacation to go skiing. I am still working her on that one. Hell I have her skiing on Mother's Day. The only logical next step is to ski somewhere in June or July!

Quite a few areas, flowers, berries, ...stuff, mostly in Montana, named in association with bears(Grizzly)...named from when the first white men settled...I think taken from Indian's/Native People's names, who worshipped bears..;-)

I still remember stopping by that place some time in the mid 70's. I was probably 7 at the time. Didn't actually ski there, we were just in the area doing touristy stuff. My family was on a big road trip in a VW camper. The snow on the side of the road was probably 10 feet high in the middle of the summer. At the time it was just a portable rope tow the skiers were using. Looks like a much more interesting setup today. Also remember getting a t-shirt in Red Lodge with some skiing gophers on it with the words "GOPHER IT". Good memories. :)

Been there. Its awesome, but different.

Cool vibe, but really not something you'd ski everyday kinda thing.
