The largest known Golden Eagle migration in the United States passes over the Bridger Mountain Range each September and October. In 1979, raptor enthusiast Fred Tilly discovered this incredible happening and spent the next four migratory seasons on Bridger Ridge counting the raptors. As a result, the site gained international recognition among raptor specialists as a central migratory flyway in the early 1980s. By 1991, Hawkwatch International, in partnership with the Custer Gallatin National Forest and Bridger Bowl Ski Area, established Bridger Bowl as one of sixteen Rocky Mountain raptor monitoring sites. At the time, more golden eagles had been documented here than any other site in the country. Today, the average count remains at 1,200-1,500 birds.

When members of the Bozeman community put their minds to something, good things happen. Crosscut Mountain Sports Center is one of those things. A few years ago, this community non-profit raised $8 million to secure the properties of Bohart Ranch Cross Country Ski Center and the defunct Crosscut Ranch, both Nordic ski venues.
