I will be in Bozeman for all of this ski season. We moved here last Jan and I was able to ski Bridger/Big Sky (have skied many times over the years) and Moonlight.
I am looking for some feedback/advice from the locals.
I am thinking of buying a season pass at Moonlight. There is a pretty good deal (for here) from Bozeman Deaconess (where my wife works). I was very impressed with the Headwaters area last March/April- and there was some other terrain that was decent as well.
I liked the over all vibe and lack of crowds of the place too.
Big Sky: My favorite, but really cannot justify the season pass prices. Already bought the value card.
Bridger: Sort of a love hate feeling (mostly love). The place is awesome in so many ways-and the drive from Bozeman is so easy, but the 45 minute wait on a Slushy's mid week powder day really turned me off-so many core college skiers-happy for them, don't get me wrong.
So I am thinking:
1) Moonlight Basin season pass (540.00)
2) Big Sky Value Card 50.00 (20.00 off lift tix plus some free days early/late)
3) Bridger Ledgend Card 35.00 (gives you 39.00 tix all season long)
My schedule is weird-I work at a nearby mine and get quite a few days off during the week-if Bridger did not get so much traffic during the week (on pow days) It would be a no brainer
great to have so many choices-Bozeman rocks
