Detailed Area Description
What most folks enjoy about Bridger Bowl is that family and friends of varying skill levels can ride the same chair while still enjoying terrain challenges they individually desire. The mountain lays out in a large funnel or V shape. With our base area facilities and lifts at the bottom of the slopes we expand from about 200 yards across the base up to approximately 2 miles wide on our ridge-lined summit.
Bridger Bowl's terrain difficulty rating (beginner to expert) is fairly easy to determine based on elevation. Generally speaking, the ski area has a nice transitional progression from a first-time beginner slope in the base area to novice terrain across the lower middle, wide-open intermediate runs in the center, advanced open bowl terrain in the upper third and, finally, expert terrain coming off the ridge top.
Skiers and snowboarders who wish to ski ridge terrain, which includes all runs off the Schlasman lift, must have an avalanche transceiver (457 khz). It is strongly recommended to have a partner, a shovel and expert skiing or snowboarding abilities in addition to knowledge of the terrain before venturing into any of our designated lift or hike-accessed ridge terrain as these areas have no hazard markings, no grooming and no marked trails. Ridge Terrain contains numerous steep chutes, rock cliffs, and snow fields which may end in unmarked cliffs. Bridger Bowl's Ridge Terrain offers some of the most challenging skiing and riding found within any ski area boundary! Please consult our trail map for detailed description of all parts of the mountain. Our terrain park is located off the top of the Sunnyside lift.
