    And everyone and their brother waited to pick up their pass till opening weekend. Line was almost to the griz at 9am sat. Once on hill I didn't once wait in lift lines but was rolling single. Nose was skiing pretty damn good and even north bowl was decent till it got bumped out. Love that patrol let's us hike early and at our own discretion. Slushman shit show just takes pressure off the boot pack and Northside. Been snowing solid at work in Manhattan today, hope I can get up 2moro afternoon.

    Gotta love Bridger for the "at your discretion" business model. 24 inch base opening day, go ahead and huck carcass into rock piles if that's your thing!

    Slushmans is indeed a shit show on most pow days, and with something like 30-40% more pass sales than just last year there is only one direction for it to go. On the biggest days of peak season there is a line of cars all the way up the canyon going 5 mph, and they are turning people back by 8:45 cause there is nowhere to park.

    Otherwise the hill is a complete ghost town on weekdays, literally like 50 people on the hill. It has made me appreciate wind buff, chalky bumps, and empty groomers more than ever that's for sure!

    The best thing about Slushmans are the 1 to 5 inch little dumps of heavier pow later in the season...A lot less people show up and Saddle is fully in play. It's not really a secret, but at least people make big turns out there and don't traverse all over the damn place. Sometimes even a magic inch resets Saddle for high speed gs turns while the rest of the hill is dust on crust moguls. People can talk all the shit about Saddle they want, I'll take 6 1500-2000 ft. laps of fall line warp speed hero turns over spracking around on thinly veiled crusty coral moguls and traverses every time!

    So all things considered, with some minor adaptations and adjustments it's the best ski hill it's ever been! I find more ways to enjoy what we've got every year since the Slushmans and new Bridger lifts have been installed.
    To be honest, things are the same way at Alta. The best days are honestly the sleeper 6 inch days and wind buff. No people, ski right on to collins and ski lap after lap with no people. The pow days are the classic LCC shitshow, maybe not as bad on the traversing aspect as Bridger.

    Here's hoping you get storm after storm that is 3-4 inches with perfect wind, Tone.

    I do like that Bridger still has affordable day passes though. That is what the sport needs.

    Ridge sign said "east wind, -35 to -45 stay safe". It was pretty damn chilly on ridgeline before dropping but otherwise it wasn't too bad. Still skiing pretty well if you know where to go. Oh and they're not opening till 10am tomorrow due to cold.

    Not as bad as the Snowbowl business model of just general douchebaggery, not fixing what needs to be fixed, etc, etc.
    No longer stuck.

    I was being serious! I love the Bridger Business Model. If there are any rules, no one ever told me about 'em.

    1 rule. Don't be an asshole.

    The rest are guidelines.

    Great to be back at the old ski hill shredding my favorite lines with friends, seeing all the familiar smiling faces, man I love skiing Bridger like no other.
