BOZEMAN – Bridger Bowl is nearing completion of a $4.1 million dollar multilift construction project to be completed for the 2013-14 season.
Two Skytrac triple chair lifts, which are made in the U.S., will replace the 46-
year-old Alpine lift, a 1967 Riblet double chair. This marks four new lifts in the
past five seasons for Bridger.
Laid out in a “V” shape pattern, both new lifts will have base terminals
adjacent to the old Alpine chair location.
The new Powder Park lift will veer south and terminate near the top of Powder
Park run and serve other great upper-intermediate runs in that area. The new
Alpine Lift will veer north and terminate at the top of Montagne Meadow,
providing easy access to some of the mountain’s best lower intermediate and
intermediate terrain. The lift previously named Powder Park will now be
known as Sunnyside.
The two new lifts will triple the capacity from 1,100 per hour to 3,300 on the
north side of the mountain. Both chairs will have ChairKid loading carpets,
bringing the number up to five total at the area – the most of any ski area in
This area of the mountain has a lower-angle bowl, long and gentle cruising
runs, glades and a community events race course.
