About Billings

Bound on the north and east by the 400-foot sandstone cliffs known as the Rimrocks, Billings boasts a climate that is mild year-round. The population is estimated at just over 140,000, which is large enough to offer plentiful entertainment, cultural, and employment options and small enough to maintain the safe, friendly, small-town feel that is its trademark. There are plenty of nearby towns and attractions that are well worth the drive:

  • Red Lodge is a 50-minute drive from Billings and is known for its great skiing and downtown shopping
  • World-famous Yellowstone National Park is a 2 hour and 35-minute drive
  • The Beartooth and Pryor Mountains are both within an hour's drive and are perfect for hiking, fishing, and camping
  • Big Sky Ski Resort and Moonlight Basin are both 3 hours from Billings
  • Bridger Bowl Ski Resort is 2 hours from Billings
