Voted #1 Ski Town in the USA
Powder Mag. Facebook Poll, Dec. 2012
Though a major part of this mountain town’s culture is its agricultural heritage, Bozeman has morphed from being a “cow town” into what Teasdale hails as “the adventure capital of the Northern Rockies”. With Montana State University embedded into the heart of Montana’s 4th largest city (pop. 38,000) and with Yellowstone National Park only 90 minutes away, there is a constant stream of youth and travelers into the area. What keeps Bozeman more grounded than most ski towns is that it’s a real working town, too. Quality of life is high here and it is reflected in the ever expanding assortment of restaurants, brew-pubs, nightlife, art and culture that is found throughout. The benefit to visitors is that they can easily stroll Main Street and feel a part of this thriving mountain town.
A visible testament to the connection between Bridger Bowl and Bozeman is the famous "Blue Light"... a powerful blue strobe light sitting on top of Bozeman's tallest building (Historic Baxter Hotel) that flashes whenever Bridger Bowl receives 2" or more of new snow in the past 24 hours. Now that's when you know you're in a real ski town!
Conveniently located along Interstate 90 with Bozeman’s Yellowstone International Airport only 10 minutes outside of town, Bozeman offers easy access to Bridger Bowl for drive-to and fly-in vacationers. We invite you to enjoy the Bridger Bowl - Bozeman experience. Collectively you will experience the best Montana has to offer … natural, unspoiled beauty, uncrowded slopes, and incredible snow and terrain all located an easy 20 minute drive from one of the world’s best ski towns.
One of the Top 25 Ski Towns in the World! “Just what makes a classic ski town? It starts, naturally, with skiing and snowboarding so good they attract people like youth-bestowing fountains. Then add an inviting mountain burg steeped in ski heritage, amenities, and culture.
