Abstract: On December 26th – 27th, 2003 Bridger Bowl Ski Area located 17 miles north of Bozeman, MT. Received a world record 24 hr. snowfall. This resulted in the decision to not open to the general public on December 27th. Bridger re-opened on December 28th. This presentation will try to cover the variables, factors affecting these decisions and the techniques used by Pro Patrol and management in responding to this amount of new snow in a short time.
