The Antelope Butte Foundation was established in 2011 to provide the facilities, support, and training for children and novices to participate in the amazing mountain recreation opportunities of the Bighorn Mountains.  Through these activities, we instill values that allow individuals to be more well-rounded and contributing members of society.  


Our mission is to

Provide affordable and accessible year-round mountain recreation, training, and educational opportunities, with a focus on youth and beginners.


We Believe

We believe that mountain recreation, both winter and summer, is an integral part of the Western lifestyle.  It makes our community a more attractive place to live and work, it provides worthwhile activities for children and families, and it drives economic growth and jobs.

our guidance 

We are guided and led by a volunteer board. The Antelope Butte Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN 45-3041394.  

The Antelope Butte Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to reopen the Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area in Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains. The 500 acre facility includes a lodge, 2 chairlifts, and 23 ski trails. In addition to snowsports, Antelope Butte will be providing year-round recreation and tourism opportunities that include mountain biking, hiking, picnicking, and scenic chairlift rides. The restoration work at Antelope Butte includes rehabilitation of the lodge, rebuilds of chairlift electronic and safety systems, and trail reclamation. Work on the trails and lodge has begun with the help of a dedicated corps of local volunteers.
