Who needs a ski rack? Throw down one of your back seats to comfortably fit two pairs of skis and poles, along with all the ski gear you’re bringing!

Skiing tired and on an empty stomach is never fun. You'll spend the whole time thinking on your grumbly tummy and not the gorgeous view.

Two of our favorite local spots, Wild Crumb and Treeline Coffee Roasters are conveniently located on the way to Bridger Bowl. Our favorite food from Wild Crumb is the Portabello Sandwich, but there are so many wonderful goodies to choose from. Pop over next door for a latte and hit the road!

Step 4: Set out to ski
