|walove||Buy a frequency card for big sky, $49 gets you the first and last weeks of the skiing for free and a discount the rest of the year. The skiing off the tram is good, but lacks the diversity of terrain that bridger has. The wind is a lot more kind to bridger too, big sky and moonlight get scoured by the wind leaving rocks exposed, or just under the pow all year long, something I was not used to coming from washington.|

I'm a washington transplant to bozeman, and been riding bridger for a few years. It is really a one of a kind ski area. What most people have been saying is true, its a comunity owned non profit runs it, no high speed lifts, lots of diverse steep terrain. If you are coming from baker, you will miss some powder days. Bridger gets 350 in a year, not quite the powder factory as other places.
As the slack country goes the ridge is in bounds but requires a hike from the top of the lifts. They have open boundries so once you one the ridge you can hike out of bounds to the north to or south as far as you want, or head down the west side and skin back up. Avy danger is more serious then WA, we had a death this year on the west side, and miss a bullet last year when saddle peak to the south slide big with multiple people on it. The inbounds riding will keep you happy for years
Another thing to note is that it is a skier dominated mountain, id guess 90% skiers to boarders, you'll have to be ready to take the board off to make it up side steps, one footing icy traveres and hike along the ridge while skiers skate by.
Snow was great this year, and a cool spring means its stayed around. I had a nice ride down super coulior from the ridge on the split board yesterday.

Go to Bridger Bowl. It fits what you're looking for to a T. A great hill for freeriding and 'slackcountry'
Not many hills I can put in that category, <10 in North America.

|kramer213||I have grown up in montana and i am currently going to school in bozeman. Bridger Bowl is my home mountain, i love riding there this last year we had some great powder days. Idk if you are a park rider the park is not Bridgers strong point. What Bridger has that i have not come across at other mountains is "the ridge" think of it as a built in back country riding. The mountain tests it and riders hike whenever they want and can pick their own lines and bomb down its sick. Bozeman is also an hour away from Big Sky another good resort. But Bridger is amazing i love riding there and love the people too.|

|killclimbz||I was just throwing it out there as it fit the bill of what you were looking for. I think Bridger is your number 1 choice and SW Colorado would be number poop...|

|DrnknZag||SW Colorado would be awesome, Silverton is definitely on my bucket list of places to shred! That being said, I'm not sure if that's quite where I want to spend next winter; it's a bit far away from the PNW than I'd like (for the moving aspect). The more I read about Bridger, the more I think it's the place I'd like to spend next year.|
