Bridger Peak Main Bowl Map

The main Bowl on Bridger Peak is an awesome east facing bowl that runs almost 2000 feet to the flats. This line avalanches often and has gigantic cornices at the top; be very careful and aware of conditions. The upper half is pretty wide open bowl skiing, especially on the skier's left side. Skier's right holds more tree chutes. After about 1000 feet it all funnels into a gully that is about 100 feet wide. Continue down to the flats, getting lots of additional turns for you effort. Access Bridger Peak from the Southern boundary of Bridger Bowl. Head south, staying on the ridge past Saddle Peak and the Pinnacles. Continue to the top of Bridger Peak, giving the very large cornices a wide berth. To get back to Bridger Bowl, take the South Bridger return track.
