Preliminary reports coming out of Montana's Bridger Bowl do not look good for spring skiers: well-skied runs ripping to the ground. There goes the theory of safety in skier compaction. The avalanches, that occurred yesterday, were results of Bridger Bowl Ski Patrol control work after about 9" of wet snow and rain. While some results from the wet, heavy snow were to be expected, common runs pulling out to the ground is something else. Good on BBSP for having the foresight to do such heavy control work and preventing any of these monster slides from happening during operating hours. The upper mountain remains closed today as Bridger Bowl management and ski patrol access the situation.
