King and Queen of the Ridge is Feb. 16

Tyler Allen



BOZEMAN – The Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center is hosting its 11th annual winter fundraising event, the King and Queen of Bridger Ridge on Saturday, Feb. 16.
Whereas past events were focused on the number of hikes, this year, the emphasis is on fun and giving out prizes to those who raise the most money. The high-energy day will have its own ridge hiking route, music and beer.
Whether you hike once or 10 times, anyone can be part of the day, says Friends of the GNFAC Board President Jeannie Wall.
“It’s a fun way to enjoy supporting avalanche education, and skiing some laps with friends without the pressure of competition!” Wall said.
The goal is to raise at least $15,000.

Prizes will be awarded for the following:
1. New this year! Most money raised (team or individual) for the least amount of hikes.

2. Most money raised by a team

3. Most money raised for the top three individuals

4. Most laps: King and Queen

5. Most laps for a team

Visit the Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center’s Facebook page, Bridger Bowl’s event page, or the GNFAC avalanche advisory ( for details and forms.
