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.

Posted by Kali Gillette on Oct 15, 2020 8:30:00 AM

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.
