3 Bears Bowl Map

3 Bears Bowl is a great open smaller bowl. It used to be skied a lot when the old Alpine chair unloaded at the top. The South side gets bumped out frequently from people traversing North from Powder Park lift. The North side of 3 Bears Bowl doesn't get hit that much and can really only be skied from the 3 Bears Traverse. The North side can get sun affected, but can hold great powder early in the season. The South side stays cool, but gets bumped out often.
