It is with great regret that Bridger Bowl reports a fatality within the ski area boundary on February 16, 2021. A 21-year-old skier was reported missing this afternoon, a description was given, and a search ensued. Shortly thereafter, the missing skier was found by Bridger Bowl Ski Patrol in a tree well. Although found unresponsive, life-saving attempts were made.
This accident is a terribly unfortunate reminder that tree wells are an inherent risk of skiing and riding. Best practice is to ski and ride with a partner keeping them in sight, especially in deep snow. If someone is missing, call ski patrol immediately.
“On behalf of all of us at Bridger Bowl, I would like to convey our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the loved one lost in this tragic incident,” expressed General Manager Bob Petitt.
