The National Geographic Society and a partnership of organizations around the region have collaborated on a project to identify and map cultural, historical, or natural landmarks, attractions, activities, events, and local businesses that capture the region's unique character and beauty.
Bridger Bowl is the only ski area among seven major ski resorts in the greater Yellowstone region in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho that was recognized for its sustainable business practices and service as a nonprofit community ski area. As well, the Bridger Raptor Festival was separately identified on the Geotourism MapGuide as a highly recognized annual festival.
The Geotourism MapGuide encourages travel that celebrates and sustains what is most distinctive about Greater Yellowstone region. The two-sided map includes contributions from local writers and experts, detailed entries about sites and events, and background on themes of regional importance.
The MapGuide describes us: “A renegade among major ski areas, Bridger Bowl operates as a nonprofit community amenity, eschewing the resort sprawl that drives other big hill operations. The facility has grown apace with Bozeman, from one rope tow and a Quonset hut in 1955 to today's eight chair lifts and three day-lodges.”
