FATMAP difficulty grade
Papa Bear is the easiest way out of the Bears area.
Early season there can be a couple small drops through the gut, but there are usually ways around these to either side.
After a couple storms, Papa Bear becomes a ski through line.
It stays out of the sun for most of the year, but sees a moderate amount of traffic, especially off the Goldilocks traverse.
There are a few nice ways down the North and South flanks of Papa where you can link a couple small drops and find preserved powder.
You'll run out into the 3 Bears Bowl.
Head fall line through Bridger Gully or out the Goldilocks traverse around the corner to the third large open area to access this zone.
