Bridger Bowl has always been a public, nonprofit community ski area. Bridger Bowl has no owners to answer to, so all Bridger Bowl skiing fees and concession proceeds are reinvested into Bridger Bowl ski area.

These funds pay for operational costs, area maintenance, and infrastructure improvements, like those noted above.

Because there are no owners or shareholders, Bridger Bowl offers high-quality skiing and snowboarding for a minimal price. And after skiing this premiere non-profit Bozeman, Montana ski area, visit Bozeman, Montana for a host of other winter activities.
