Most people think Colorado when they think big mountain skiing in the west. However, one of the best places to ski is just outside Bozeman, MT. This sleepy little college town is home to one of the country’s best ski mountains. Bridger Bowl is a mom and pop co-op with some of the country’s most extreme skiing. If you are feeling real daring you can climb to the ridge line. One word of caution: this hill only offers limited terrain for those in-between sliders.
