The new Slushman lift will add approximately 300 acres of lift-served terrain, allowing for the first significant expansion of lift services at Bridger since 1978. Slushman's will remain out-of-bounds this winter, but skiers and riders may explore the experts-only terrain by accessing the slopes through designated gates.
Bridger Bowl purchased a Doppelmayr double chairlift from Snowbird in 2006 and is currently reconditioning it to be installed in fall 2008. Crews buried 6,000 linear feet of power and communication line to the site this summer, and hope to pour concrete and erect the base terminal before this winter sets in.
The new lift will rise 1,700 vertical feet, 400 feet more than the Bridger Lift. The slope length will cover 3,800 feet with the top terminal sitting approximately 100 feet below the ridge line.
