Memorial Day Excursions Anyone?

Red Lodge, MT. Memorial Day is the holiday that is responsible for unofficially kicking off the summer season. Already five months into 2011, it is evident that time moves quickly, but it is challenging not to revel in the idea of longer days, more sunshine, camping, and grilling out with friends and family.

For many, Memorial Day signals reaching into the depths of the closet to pull out all the gear that so patiently awaited the wintry thaw. Our friends and supporters at Crazy Creek are clinging to winter just a little bit longer. They have invited the Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers to the annual pilgrimage of skiers and boarders and others to the opening of Beartooth Pass outside of Red Lodge, MT. Historically, people camp on the roadside and hike over to intense skiing and snowboarding opportunities. We will be set up in the Crazy Creek parking on Sunday May 29th , 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Crazy Creek, 1401 S. Broadway, Red Lodge, MT. In addition, there will be drawings for fabulous prizes at the event. Prizes include mapping software, a Beartooth Bike Tour for two, an Adventure Whitewater raft trip for two, Crazy Creek Chairs, “Who Pooped in the Park” books for children, maps and other fun prizes.

Once the sun sets, we will relive the day's activity as we take it easy at the Pollard Hotel. Special thanks to Pollard Hotel for generously donating a room and hosting us for the weekend. If you're ever in Red Lodge, MT, pop in for a relaxing stay!
We look forward to creating new memories that signify the passing of winter and spring and the welcoming of summer. What kind of adventure does Memorial Day weekend hold for you?
