Bridger Bowl Ski Area near Bozeman, Montana and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. This family-friendly ski area is located in the Bridger Mountain Range of southern Montana. As locally owned and non-profit, Bridger Bowl Ski Area provides locals and visitors alike with affordable skiing, great terrain, and outstanding snowfall. Throughout the winter season, The Ridge at Bridger Bowl Ski Area is hit by storms that produce vast amounts of light powder snow. The mountain receives storm snowfall totals that rival the world’s best powder skiing areas. So if you’re looking for a natural, undeveloped, big mountain playground with great snow that lacks the tourist crowds, you’ll find it here. Bridger Bowl Ski Area is a true hidden gem, which features great snow and spectacular views from the summit of the mountain.

On the Slopes:
At Bridger Bowl Ski Area, you will quickly discover that the terrain is laid out in relation to skier or snowboarder ability levels. Green terrain on the lower runs, Blue midway on the mountain and black and double black higher into the alpine.

The intermediate terrain is incredible, with lovely fall lines descending down, Southern Drawl, Bridger Run, Porcupine and Bobcat. These are just a few of the runs that will become familiar to you as you spend more and more time at Bridger Bowl.

The addition of the Schlasman’s Lift added an additional 311 acres of Expert Only terrain, known as The Ridge. This area will challenge even the most seasoned skier and snowboarder. Make sure that you know your ability level, before entering the areas of Mundy’s Bowl, Slushman’s Ravine, Fingers, Nose and North Bowl.

In order to have access to Schlasman’s lift you must follow some clearly laid out rules. You must carry an avalanche transceiver and it is “strongly” recommended that you are with a partner and carry a shovel in the event anything may occur. Please be prepared!!

At the top of the Sunnyside Lift, you can choose to make your way back the base area or ski or snowboard to the Alpine Lift where you’ll have access to some gentler terrain on Montagne Meadow, Limestone and Lower Limestone.

Not sure where to ski or snowboard, then check out the Bridger Bowl Ski Area Mountain tours that can be arranged to show you around the mountain. Also, Ridge Guide tours to the Ridge area can be arranged for the adventurer in you.

Off the Slopes:
While there are no slope side accommodations, the active university town of Bozeman offers multiple lodging opportunities and an impressive list of dining, nightlife and entertainment options to round out your stay.
