The descent for this area is pretty short, but it does get steep. You start out going through the trees, and as it gets steeper, it becomes an avy path. The hanging meadow is a short pitch that is void of trees, but be careful because it is prone to avalanches caused by backcountry skiers. Once you are down through the meadow, you can cut hard left to get back to the first turnoff and take a quick skin back up to the warming hut or you can continue NW and go down to 7 Mile, which is a much longer run.[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.
