Description

The Burn is a unique area at Bridger Bowl. It is a steep treed area that got burned out a few years ago. This area was hard to ski before the fire opened it up. It will hold good snow even late in the year, and is a great place to take photos. Early in the season you will want to ski carefully due to the abundance of stumps and snags that are in this area. To get here, start skiing either Keith's or Kanzler's, head towards the other chute after about halfway, you will start to see burned trees.
