We are planning to drive out from Minnesota to ski for a few days in Montana. I am an intermediate skier, my wife skied a lot as a kid but is just getting back into skiing. My 13 y.o. son snowboards, and enjoys moderate terrain parks. My 10 y.o. daughter likes to ski the black runs locally, but would probably like the greens and blues out west.
We reserved a hotel/lift package at Bridger in Bozeman on the recommendation of a friend, but I am concerned about the lack of snow. I hear the conditions are much better at Red Lodge currently. Is Red Lodge fairly family-friendly? Can anyone recommend a decent, reasonably priced place to stay around there? Would it make any sense to stay in Billings?
Any other recommendations? I am open to other suggestions, thought about Colorado, but that would probably be quite a bit more expensive, correct?
