Great Divide ski area open today due to heavy snows this week for $19, and according to the Missoulian it's the 1st time a Montana resort has been open in May.
Great Divide celebrates late snowstorm
What about Red Lodge?
Red Lodge Ski Area usually closes in early April. Up on Beartooth Pass, outside Red Lodge far from the ski area, there is a palma lift that another operation runs for summer camps. It would be hardpressed to qualify that as a ski area though it does provide a few hundred vertical feet of lift-serviced skiing in early summer.
That is exactly what I was thinking when I said Red Lodge. I remember summer camps at Red Lodge, but I didn't realize it was separate from the actual ski area.
On another note, I remember making some summer turns near Beartooth Pass in July (no lift). It was about 25 years ago so my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I remember having a blast.

BT pass is opening a freeride camp this summer-and they will be open to the public as well (I heard May 29-but not 100% sure)
The terrain is extremely steep...and more than "a few hundred vertical feet"-looks closer to 800-900' of steepness-just a guess
and the Poma will be rolling!
