Bridgers

The Bridger Mountains are named after Jim Bridger, an early pioneer. Today, the Bridgers are home to the Bridger Bowl ski area, camping, hiking, lakes, and many more recreational opportunities.

From the time of the proposed boundary expansion at Bridger Bowl to the moment I first arrived at the Schlasman’s lift line, I was nothing but ecstatic. But in the minutes leading up to my first ride, I began to waver. It was then that I thought about what "Slushman’s" really was. Read more >>
