Bridger is a great mountain that is only about a 15-20 minute drive from downtown Bozeman. Most people probably visit Bozeman from out of state to ski nearby Big Sky Resort, but that's fine with us.

Bridger Bowl is only 16 miles from Bozeman making it a playground for winter sports enthusiasts in the area. Excellent expert terrain, less expensive than many ski areas, inexpensive season passes, all lifts have moving carpets for smooth loading. Been skiing/snowboarding there for nearly 30 years now.

Because of Bridger's 2700 ft of vertical, 350+ inches of snow, 2,000 skiable acres and 75 named trails, Bridger is comparable to some of world's best ski resorts. However, due to its renegade nonprofit status and lack of stockholders, Bridger Bowl has been able to eschew typical resort sprawl and reinvest year-end profits back into the mountain for the past...

We had a great ski experience at Bridger! The benefits of skiing here outweighed driving to Big Sky Pros: Very economical - young kids free if only asking on bottom of mountain, 20-30 minute drive from Bozeman, easy parking, rental, lift tix, children class sign up, ski school was helpful for our 6 year old and ended up being solo...

With less than 1 week left before they close for the season all the lifts were open and all the cafés. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Never lines on the lifts and we almost had the mountain to ourselves. We have 10 & 12 year olds and this mountain is perfect for them as well as my husband (... More

Bridger Bowl is about a half hour from central Bozeman on paved roads. It is a pleasant medium-sized facility with newer structures and services.

We had been to Big Sky at the beginning of our trip and found ourselves with extra time and a desire to ski again, so we checked out Bridger Bowl. We told the staff that the kids had had their first lesson earlier in the week and the kids were placed in lessons based on that information. It turned out... More

Even though I fell and thought my collar bone was broken, I still had fun. The staff really helped out when I fell and got me down the mountain and to the aid station quick. Before my incident, I was having a ton of fun and was blown away by how beautiful it was and how great the powder was!

OK, the snow was marginal but this year having any snow is great. The price is right, only $53. The locals are friendly and quirky and good skiers; you have to be because the inbounds terrain is steep, with interesting terrain features and multiple aspects. Any chairlift that has an avy transceiver checkpoint before you can load has to be... More

We came from Big Sky to stay a few days in Bozeman and tried out Bridger Bowl. What a treasure - a short and pretty drive to the slopes, no crowds, price is right and great skiing. Wish we lived here and could take advantage of Bridger Bowl more often!
