Abundant early season snowfall will enable Bridger Bowl ski area to open on Friday, Nov. 24, the day following Thanksgiving. The mountain will operate on a limited schedule until full-time daily operations commence on Friday, Dec. 8.

The preseason schedule is: Nov. 24-26 (Friday-Sunday); Dec. 1-3 (Friday-Sunday). Tickets will be sold at regular season prices. 

This will be the first time since the 2010-2011 season that such an early opening will take place and is due to the persistent, wintry weather that has blanketed the slopes with more than 3 feet of snow.
