The descent is a mellow run that ranges between 20º and 34º. There is a headwall on skiers right, which will put you in the glacial lake, and is prone to avalanches. Be careful of this in with new snow, as the under layers are pretty firm and often icy. Skier's left is a much more mellow line, that ends at a pile of rocks, where often people will leave lunches and whatnot. In winter and spring you can ski back down the road and end up back at the car.[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.
