Top Secret Tree Skiing Stashes at Bridger Bowl and Big Sky

Posted by Visit Bozeman on Nov 12, 2020 12:00:00 PM

Great tree skiing runs can be hard to find, especially if you are only exploring a mountain for a few days. Tree spacing, steepness, and snow depth are a few factors that make some tree runs better than others. If the trees are too close together then you have to keep your speed down to be able to make your turns. If the slope is too steep it makes it difficult to control your speed or if it isn't steep enough you find yourself sinking in deeper snow. Riding with someone who is familiar with the mountain is always preferred to help you find your way around, but if you are on vacation, that it can be difficult to find locals to show you around. So we've put together a list of some of our favorite tree runs at Bridger Bowl and Big Sky. Next time you are spending a day at either ski area, be sure to check these runs out. We hope we aren't giving away too many secrets so leave some powder for us.
