Skiing and Bozeman are like peanut butter and jelly. In the early 70’s, serious skiers discovered Bridger Bowl’s steep chutes, light and dry powder, sunny days and laid back attitude. True mountaineers were drawn to the area, carving fresh tracks in unexplored territory. With this wave of skiers, came the need for ski shops. Not just ordinary ski shops, but serious ski shops. Which is exactly what happened. Today, a handful of these local ski shops are still thriving, and are known for their deep expertise and extensive product knowledge; and they are still full of passion for the outdoors.
Birthdays abound in Bozeman this month, which means one thing…celebration! From the festivities at Bridger Bowl to the fine gala at the Emerson Cultural Center, January events in Bozeman are made for celebrating!
Hiking lovers take note. Snowshoeing in Yellowstone National Park is a gorgeous way to continue your adventures through the winter. You’ll see the nooks and crannies of the park in a whole new way. Since snowshoes distribute your weight over a large surface area, it is a low impact workout that most everyone can do. A few things to note, winter in this area brings cold dry air and the sun can be intense. When you hit the snowshoe trails be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks and bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and layers of clothing—the weather can change quickly!

The reasons I moved to Bozeman after college were simple: big mountains, deep snow, blue skies and cute boys.
What I found were big mountains, deep snow, blue skies and some bad ass women skiers who are still some of my closest friends.
I had saved enough money to work part-time and ski part-time. Bridger Bowl had an allure; it was known for its hard-core skiers and steep terrain. I wasn’t a daring skier, but I certainly wanted to be.
