Pros: Terrain, terrain, terrain
Ride any chair at Bridger Bowl and look up at the rock faces of The Ridge: to me, this is the most beautiful cathedral in the world. I never get bored at Bridger--there are lots of north faces where the snow stays fresh for days, great tree-skiing, wonderful chutes, and terrific hike-to terrain. This is an expert skier's mecca, and also a fun family-friendly area with lots of skiing for the more sedate riders on Pierre's Knob and Alpine, which is like a private ski area within the ski area. The ambience at Bridger is another feature I love--laid-back, authentic, and a great value (midweek season pass for only $375, early purchase). This is a very special place. I call it home.
