I am thinking about going to college in Montana, and MSU is right next to Bridger Bowl I think. Am I right or wrong about this, and if I am correct, how are the conditions?

looks pretty good as far as a decent well rounded resort.  theres also big sky an moonlight.

ill be there in feb/march and i was just there a few weeks ago but didnt go look at the terrain.  my brother and a few friends + more people from here are going to msu as freshmen this year.  if you go, be friends with them.  no choice.

Yeah Bridger Bowl and that whole general area can get really good snow, you also have Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, and some others resorts all very close to that area, it's a great place to go if you're looking for a college that's still somewhat affordable and close to a lot of good terrain.

I'm a sopguy i likere here at MSU. Bridger is awesome. Like 15 miles from campus and they get awesome powder. Perfect place for a student. Big Sky and Moonlight are about 45 miles and there is a shuttle service for moonlight at least. Big Sky has way more terrain of course, and a much better park if you care about that. I feel like Bridger gets better snow more consistently. It's on the east side of the Bridger range which is the first range on the east side of the huge valley. So you get all the weather coming across from the west and north and a storm can just sit there and dump. New lift accessed backcountry terrain added last year. Johan called it "a mini Jackson Hole". Can't compare Bridger to anywhere based on convenience, riding and price.

yeah Bridger is about a 15-20 minute drive north of bozeman. Just got my pass and while it doesn't have the ritz of big sky or all the tahoe resorts i'm used to, I've heard it gets a decent amount of snow and lots of powder. Back in 2003 i heard they got 71 inches in 24 hours. The only thing that sucks is all the ridge terrain you need to have a beacon for because they do get some avalanches up there. But as far as being in close proximity to Bozeman you spend more time on the slopes and less time driving especially if its snowing. They did add a new lift that opened up more sidecountry, jibs and jumps have been added, and they are planning on adding more acres and better lifts. With it being so close and cheap I can't complain but this'll be my first season in Montana so I'm hoping for the best.
