Description

Mad Man's tends to be the run where new ridge skier's cut their teeth. It is very easy to access from halfway up the Bridger hike. You can see down most of the run from the top, and it will always have preserved powder. The upper section is a relatively wide funnel that will narrow to about 20ft after 150ft. It then bends a gentle right out into the apron before meeting up with the North Bowl Road. There are a couple ways to get into Mad Man's on the skier's right side that will stay fresh days after a storm, but these tend to be a little more technical.
