Lost Shot Notch Map

This line is the rock buttress between Morning Glory and Z. It is often thought about, but very rarely skied. Lost Shot Notch used to be labeled "Do Not Ski" on old D Route Maps- for good reason. It is one of the gnarliest areas at Bridger Bowl. Pretty much, don't go. You shouldn't even think about this area until you've studied it extensively from above, around, and below. Seriously, BEWARE! It isn't skiable most years, but can be skied during a record snow year or post season. When you do feel like you can get into it, you won't need an explanation of the line. Do Not Ski.
