Default wet slide at bridger

A week of warm temps with out freezing over night, then add 1.8 in of water, rain then 9 in of snow over night. Patrol kicked off some of the new snow and it stepped down. BIG TIME. Be careful when it starts to warm up those facets on the ground can become very reactive.

similar to the event at hyak acouple years ago and france this year, atleast it didnt remove any lift towers

also a good reminder that even though a slope is controlled and skied all year when things warm up it changes everything. Bridger becomes a popular touring spot once the lifts stop spinning. Its easy to let your guard down when you have skied that run one hundred times in a controlled situation.
