Beartooth Highway, Wyoming – After not operating this spring or summer due to an insufficient snowpack, one of the few ski areas in North America that operates during the summer is now on the market.

Today, the shareholders of Beartooth Basin announced that the ski area is for sale. According to their website, the purchase comes with “2 high-speed Doppelmayr surface lifts, 3 Snowcats, portable diesel generator, 7 trailers, [and] all tools and equipment needed to operate ski area.” A 20-year permit comes with the purchase, which covers 90 acres and a 1000+ foot vertical drop.

Located on the Beartooth Pass highway, which is only open seasonally, Beartooth Basin can only operate during the late spring and summer. In recent years, the amount of time that the ski area has been able to operate has been limited. During some summer ski areas, like 2022 and 2024, the ski area didn’t open due to an insufficient snowpack. In 2019, they even started a GoFundMe to help them with various operational expenses.

The ski area was founded in the early 1960s by Pepi Gramshammer, Eric Sailer, and Anderl Molterer as an alpine skiing training venue. Originally known as Red Lodge International Ski and Snowboard Camp, it was used only for private training. It was then sold to a younger generation, who made it a public ski area. Since 2002, the summer-only ski area has been owned by Austin Hart, Justin Modroo, Kurt Hallock, and David Leuschen.
