A small Bozeman company makes a pack built for skiing and hiking Bridger Bowl.
In December 2008, Montana's Bridger Bowl opened Schlasman’s (pronounced Slushman) lift—a new 300-acre expansion that accesses 1,700 feet of steep, agressive terrain. Beacons, shovels, probes, and partners are required and bootpacking is encouraged. Runs like Little Schlasman’s Ravine require a five-minute hike to reach 1,600 vertical feet, starting with an open bowl that narrows into funnel with two mandatory airs. The point is: It’s expert-only terrain and you’ll want a pack to carry all your stuff.
