I just found out that my season pass gives me 50% off at Red Lodge in Montana and am thinking about going.
What's the deal with the Palisades area? Reviews seem to indicate that it's often closed, but this doesn't make a lot of sense. There's two high-speed lifts at Red Lodge and one serves the palisades. Why would they go to the expense of putting in a HSQ for terrain that's not open very often? Usually the "fringe" terrain is served by an ancient fixed grip double or a T-bar.
Any other tips regarding Red lodge greatly appreciated.
