Bridger Bowl just had one insane weekend. The ski resort registered 26 inches on Saturday (February 25) followed by an additional 13 inches on Sunday (February 26), and locals rejoiced. A little about the resort that sits outside Bozeman, Montana (and a little over an hour and a half north of another storied Montana resort, Big Sky); Bridger spans across four bowls consisting of 2,000 acres of skiable terrain, with a vertical rise of 2,700 feet. Experienced skiers and snowboarders can get their thrills (and after this weekend’s storm, waist deep turns) off of Bridger Bowl’s Ridge, which makes up some of the most difficult terrain on the mountain (avalanche equipment is also recommended for venturing into this area).
Last weekend’s powder had skiers and snowboarders out in force; according to the Bozeman Daily ChronicleSaturday’s snow total saw 4,700 skiers and snowboarders hit the hill, with Sunday’s accumulation seeing another 4,900 people show up for a chance at faceshots and freshies. The video below makes a case for just how good this weekend was, and for the resort’s slogan “Ski The Cold Smoke.” Enjoy.
