Description

The Nose is by far a favorite among Bridger skiers. It is a gentle open slope with trees interspaced between nice alleys of powder. It is one of the best runs to take a new ridger skier on. The Nose starts at the bomb box and rescue sled that is at the top of the side step/ boot pack across the top of Never Never and Right Side. You can drop in here, at the bomb box, or head a little further South, anywhere you go, it will be incredible. The Nose pitches over for just a short second, where a few rocks may be early season, before dumping you into the gentle meadows that is The Nose proper. Skiing in this area is amazing, and it will usually hold good cold snow even long after a storm in the spring. Make your way through the Tree alleys and meadows, eventually coming to the High Traverse somewhere between Lower Nose and Psychopath. From here, ski wherever you feel comfortable down from the High T.
