Nun's Map

Nun's is one of the gnarlier lines at Bridger Bowl. It has very tight rock walls that will take out your knees, shoulders, or knuckles. It is not to be taken lightly. The run out doesn't really open up until about 300ft past the crux, so you will be going VERY fast by the time you get to make a free turn. Start down Green Jeans, and instead of heading out to the right into the hanging snowfield, head down the gut of the gulley. In about 80 feet, you will be above the crux. Take a deep breath, let em run, and hold on tight. It is a good idea to have a spotter to stop anyone who may be coming out of Colter's who could potentially be in your way.
