Magnifent snow dotted mountains in June, tall green grass with variety of evergreen trees, creeks rushing with fresh snow melt, antelope, deer and eagles observed along the way, and a gorgeous colorful sunset late in the evening. Drive well worth taking to feel just a little bit more alive!

Love this local area, lots of hard terrain and fantastic snow, fewer crowds, great views. Sometimes they open late due to avalanche control and parking is awful, but it's worth it!

It had good snow when we visited, but it reminded me of an eastern resort. It certainly was not at all like the massive, steep and deep Big Sky Resort close by.

Bridger Bowl continues to offer, like everything else in Bozeman, serious, authentic, and challenging experiences and recreation without attitude. The mountain skews intermediate to advanced on terrain, but better access to beginner/intermediate mix came in the 2013/2014 year. This is NOT a resort, but a true local ski area that also offers significant advanced terrain and side-country options.

Loved this place - great slopes for all different levels of skiers - from black diamond son to green-slope mamma (me) - we all enjoyed our day!

Great skiing, great ski instructors, great equipment rental...oh and fabulous FRIES! Bridger is not just for the locals, this hidden gem is close to Downtown Bozeman - 25 minute drive and daily tickets cost less than the other ski resorts near by.

We were recently here for a YSL ski championship race. The lift tickets are reasonable (esp. when compared to neighboring Big Sky!). We find the Virginia City lift super annoying, but once you get beyond that, there are plenty of high-speed lifts and lots of good terrain. Snow was great and there is certainly plenty of terrain no matter what... More

Our family vacation is to Bridger Bowl. The staff is always friendly and the mountain is just awesome. I have skied many different mountains and I just Love this place. It holds the snow great and what that means is it doesn't get wind swept like other mountains. They have the best lift prices and a mom and pop feel... More

Over a year ago I rated Moonlight Basin as a superior value. That has now changed. This year Bridger Bowl installed two new chair lifts (Alpine and Powder Park) that provide better access to some really nice terrain--especially for skiing fresh powder and skiing through trees. Moonlight merged with Big Sky and is now very expensive--twice as much as Bridger.... More

Amazing snowboarding! However i must say I am from Southern California where you have to watch out for rocks and mud in man made snow. But it is still a great park. There are a lot of skiers, and the runs are tailored to skiers. Which was new to me because most of my local mountains are littered with snowboarders... More
