Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF) is a nonprofit community ski organization based in Bozeman, Montana. We provide and fund educational and competitive programs for all ages, year round, in Nordic, Alpine, and Freestyle/Freeskiing. We also groom an incredible network of community Nordic ski trails for the public in Bozeman. We focus on inspiring a lifelong love skiing, athletic excellence, and personal growth. Our programs and trails are open to everyone, and we strive to keep skiing affordable through fundraising, scholarships, financial aid, open trail access, and equipment assistance. In 2015, BSF became a Gold Certified Club, the highest recognition given by the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA).
We’re proud of our unique position as community-focused ski organization: our doors are open to anyone who wants to ski and we love the diversity of skiers in our programs and on Bozeman's trails. We fundraise approximately half our operating budget each year to keep program costs down, and we groom trails for public access at six venues in Bozeman. COME SKI WITH US.
