Reservations will be limited to 750 people per day until Mother Nature provides some more snow.

Also, make sure you upload a photo to your skiing account, and your waivers are signed for each person who will be skiing BEFORE arriving at Bridger Bowl

Food and beverages will be available in the Jim Bridger Lodge and the Deer Park Chalet.
