SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
Skiers and snowboarders have the run of three world-class destination resorts, all within an hour’s drive, including community-owned Bridger Bowl.
Located 16 miles north of Bozeman, Bridger is renowned for powder so dry and wispy, locals dub it “the cold smoke”. Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin, an hour south of Bozeman, are ideal for those seeking a road trip in their pursuit of powder.

From a dedicated beginner area with its own chairlift for first-timers to Bridger's newly lift-accessed 'Ridge', there is certainly something for everyone. Expert skiers and riders will find a vertical playground of chutes, snowfields, cliff bands and glades. Four large alpine bowls and a multitude of superb natural terrain features including forested slopes, smaller bowls and gullies provide riders the opportunity to hone their skills and test their limits.
