walove bridger bowl is just a different type of mountain. Its a non profit that is run by a community organisation, vs the resort feel of bigsky and moonlight. The terrain and lift layout at bridger focus on the steep technical riding, not long groomer highways.

what i love about bridger is how easy it is to get into challenging terrain, right off the lift, and if you are willing to hike a bit there is a lifetime of lines that will challenge the most experienced riders.

bigsky and moonlight have steep terrain off the tram, challenger, headwaters but lacks the diversity of lines and zones that bridger has. The wind is also much kinder to the snow at bridger, keeping most of the rocks covered.

At bridger the ridge terrain and slushmans lift require a beacon to access. This has a lot more to do with keeping people from getting over their head than snow safety. If you are interested message me and i'll point you in right direction as a lot of the good runs at bridger are not obvious.

Why do you say that about Bridger? Is it more of a "close to backcountry" type of place? Im thinking of heading to Bozeman in a few days and am looking for any info i can get!

Kapn.K Big Sky is one of the best I've been to. No nightlife to speak of but LONG runs and any terrain you could think of. It's so big the only place you might find a crowd is around the lifts(and that probably won't happen, either). It seemed like I had entire runs to myself.

Lemmon04 Oh yeah! My brother goes to Big Sky all the time and loves it. If I'm not mistaken, I think its one of the biggest resorts in the nation. They always have awesome snow, and more than enough room ride. So to answer your question, Yes its DEFINITELY worth your time and money

Karpediem Big sky is awesome, make sure you hit up Moonlight for a day if you can. Thete is pretty much no nightlife and depending on when in March you go, there is a chance for spring conditions or tons of snow...last year we got both.

Big Sky, Montana

I'm planning on going on a trip to big sky with a few friends in March! What's it like? Is it worth the trip from central South Dakota?
