Bridger Bowl Opening Day 2019

BOZEMAN, MONTANA, Monday, December 2, 2019 - Bridger Bowl is pleased to announce the opening of the 2019-2020 ski season this Friday, December 6th at 9am. Entering our 65th ski season, we appreciate the continued support from our local, and regional SW Montana cliental.  Bridger continues to see record skier visits and pass sales, paralleling the influx of growth in the surrounding areas.  We are working on Long Range planning for our facilities that will help with the growth and continue to provide exceptional guest experiences.

Bridger Bowl Guest Service and Administration Offices will be closed on Wednesday, December 4th to allow for a scheduled power outage by NorthWestern Energy in the upper Bridger Canyon.  Offices will open on Friday, December 6th through the end of the season.     
In addition, Bridger Bowl will be closed to all uphill travel starting at midnight on Wednesday, December 4th.  This closure is necessary to allow Ski Patrol a full day to concentrate on preparing the mountain for Opening Day.  Please respect the closure and do not enter Bridger Bowl property or USFS lands within the operating boundary. Safety is a concern and there are no exceptions.
Please note throughout the season, uphill travelers cannot enter Bridger Bowl via the adjacent Crosscut Mountain Sports property.  All access into Bridger Bowl must be made via the lifts in the base area for the continued safety of our guests and employees. 
Please carpool and ride the buses throughout the season.  On busy days, there is often heavy highway traffic and occasionally parking lots may fill up.  Bridger Bowl contracts with two bus companies, Streamline and First Student, for free bus service to and from the mountain. Pick up and drop off locations in town are at the SUB at MSU and the Gallatin County Fairgrounds at the Park N' Ride lot on Oak Street.
Bridger Bowl continues to be family-friendly and we are working to keep our operations costs low while still providing a great product for the community; beginner to expert, child to senior. We are looking forward to another great snow year!
