First Ridge hike of the year

One of the more interesting aspects to skiing at Bridger Bowl is the Ridge. Put your skis on a pack or over your shoulder and, assuming you have an avalanche beacon, shovel, and partner, you are only a 20 minute steep boot pack hike from the Ridge. Once up top, you can go north or south and then ski an unlimited amount of steep and deep. Today was our first ridge hike of the year. Once on top Bridger feels nothing like a typical resort experience.

There are a couple of pictures from today (click the image below), even a couple of rare shots of cowdog skiing.
