Bridger Bowl has 2,000 skiable acres, 71 runs, and eight chairlifts. The longest continuous run is three miles. The total vertical drop on the mountain is 2700 feet. While more than half of the trails are beginner and intermediate, Bridger Bowl is particularly renowned for its back-country skiing areas along "The Ridge." A chairlift shuttles skiers directly to the Ridge. As the mountain is prone to avalanches, the expert-only areas (and the lift to the Ridge) require skiers to have avalanche transmitters.
Notably, Eagle Mount, a local non-profit, provides sick and disabled children the opportunity to ski with specialized equipment and trained personnel. They have recently begun expanding their program to serve disabled veterans.
Each August, you can join the Bridger Ridge Run across the top of the Bridger Mountains. The twenty-mile trail run is one of the most rugged trail races anywhere.
The ski area is easily accessible by a state highway, and is about a twenty-minute drive from downtown Bozeman. Feel free to catch the free ski bus on weekends. Bridger Bowl has no overnight accommodations on the mountain, but it does have three lodges with equipment rental, dining, and retail areas.
