The couloir is skiable from summit to bottom (1200+ feet), however, when we skied it we entered the couloir from a side inlet 200' below the summit as a sizable cornice existed at the top. The upper pitch can reach 50 degrees, but the majority of the couloir is sustained 45. The bulk of the couloir is fairly shaded from the sun, except for the top 100', so an early start is prudent. No narrow chokes exist and the majority of the couloir is wide at roughly 30', but it does have a double fall line.[more]
By far the easiest and most popular destination for the powder hungry population of Bozeman. With easy slackcountry access from Bridger Bowl, and remote big lines in Fraser Basin and the Fairy Lake area, the Bridgers are the standard in Southwest Montana. Just please don't traverse across Mundy's bowl, and use extreme caution on Saddle Peak.
How to Get There
Access is found off of the Bridger Canyon Road, follow the road to Bridger Bowl or continue north and take a left at the Fairy Lake Road turnoff.
