The 3 Bears Traverse is used to access the Northern most runs off the Bridger chair. It runs along the tops of Baby, Mama, and Papa Bear, as well as heading around the corner to the bottom of The Apron. It is easy, but watch out for the woopdee as it leaves North Bowl Road.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
