Bridger is a medium sized area with great steeps and chutes on the upper mountain and lots of long intermediate terrain on the lower mountain. The top 1/3 is frequented by probably the highest percentage of outstanding skiers of any resort in the nation. The lower mountain has families, little kids, tourists, and some wanna-be park rats that haven't yet realized that Bridger has a crappy terrain park. Why create fake terrain down on the flats when there is awesome natural terrain? Bridger has lots of locals who work all summer to be able to ski all winter, day in day out. And big powder days are crowded. Best skiing is mid-week. Only two bars at the base, basically shut down by 6:00, and no lodging. But college-town Bozeman has lots of night life 15 minutes away.
