What about Bridger?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I'd like to catch a couple of days at Bridger before we head to Big Sky.  Is there any kind of Bridger ticket deal possible?  Or can you buy lift tickets cheaper in town someplace? 

post #2 of 15

I don't know of any ticket deals at this date, Sue. The tickets are pretty inexpensive, relatively speaking:

 

LIFT TICKETS

 

Bridger Bowl is a nonprofit community ski area offering world-class skiing at small-town rates. That's why we call Bridger Bowl a "World-Class Community Ski Area." Our day ski lift ticket prices are some of the lowest you will find anywhere. Compared to ski areas of similar size and services, we offer the best value for skiing or riding anywhere in North America!

Ticket Rates

Full Day: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Half-Day: 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
2008-2009 Season Prices
Adults $45
Adults 3 Day Pass $42/day
Adults Half Day $37
Seniors (65-71) $37
Disabled $37
Child (6-12) $16
Snow Flake Lift $5
Seniors (72+) FREE
Child (5 & under) FREE

Nolo,  would it be reasonable to ski Bridger on Sun and still get to Big Sky for the meeting etc. what time is meeting and how far from Bridger to Big Sky?  Sorry guess I could look up on map but this was so easy and I will blame Mountaingirl she brought it up.

Bridger Bowl is 90 minutes from Big Sky.  On a typical March Sunday there aren't any lift lines so you can get lots of skiing in by 2:00 or 3:00 if you start at 9:00.

Scupper -

 

I'll definitely be skiing Bridger with Philpug & RicB on Saturday, March 28.  You are more than welcome to join us.  As of now plans are to ski at Big Sky on Sunday, March 29 where I'll be giving my (im)famous two bit tour.  If things are slow at work I might slip out for a morning of skiing at Bridger before the 28th.....I'll let you know if I'm up there when you're there.

It would be great if you could join us.  We can arrange a hook-up time & place as the day approaches.  Bring peeps if you have them.

Think of me while I'm sitting in the MSP airport on my way there.

Getting to Bridger Bowl from Maine could be an "Epic", but I'll try to keep this short.

 

We did the usual 2 hour trip to Bangor starting 4am, and had an uneventful flight to Detroit. After a 2 hour layover and a 1.5 hour mechanical delay we flew to MSP MN and on to Bozeman. On arrival over Bozeman we had to divert to Great Falls because of visibility and winds. After refueling in GF we made the 1/2 hour flight to Bozeman uneventfully and landed about 9pm (11 Maine time). We picked up groceries and on down 86/ Bridger Canyon in the dark with blowing snow. We missed the turn to Bridger Bowl because the sign was off the highway and unlit and the road was not plowed. After the 10 mile back track it only took 1/2 an hour to locate the condo in the dark on the unplowed roads. Seems like home!

 

Now for the important stuff! If you're coming here in the dark  without a local guide the turn is N 45d 48.99'  W 110d 53.00' by my GPS.

 

It's just getting light here. I haven't been out yet, but it looks like some nice new snow will reward me for the 'epi trip'

 

Regards to all

Bob

Can't wait to ski with you! I have a 12:30 both days, but you can catch me at any other line up: 9, 10:30, and 2pm! If I'm cut, I'll ski with you!
