so i am trying to decide where to get a pass in the bozeman area this year. i will most likely get one for big sky alone or one for bridger and one for moonlight. everyone has been talking about how moonlight's park is the best, but i also heard they were very much lacking on the jumps... is this true? where is everyone getting their passes?
Moonlight didn't have much for jumps last year because they didn't have any snow to work with and all their snowmaking is limited to the lower mountain. I'd do the Bridger/Moonlight thing myself.
To be honest from an east coaster perspective. There are no decent parks/pipes at Bridger, moonlight, or bigsky. The pipe and big sky is a joke. I'd stick with bridger/moonlight if you can afford it. Bridger is great for those days that you only have a couple hours to enjoy a pow day. plus it's been my experience that big sky is also the most uptight about building your own little kickers, but naturally anything of decent size you need to go back country.
moonlight seems to focus way more on rails, though i heard that might change this year? i don't ski much park myself, but i always hear big sky's park is pretty lame. i guess its the biggest, with presumably the most variety. and there's going to be a new head park guy this winter, so who knows. personally, i have a pass for big sky, and just hit up moonlight and bridger a couple times a season. but i live in big sky. if i lived in bozeman, moonlight/bridger might be the way to go.

ski season- its closer than you think
I had a pass to all three last year, and this year I am saying fuck it to big sky. Big sky cators to the turists more than anything. I'm going bridger/moonlight. Moonlight is gonna have a sick park last year.

i have to disagree on the pipe at bigsky. livng on the east coast last year(thanks to the military) there wasnt a single mountain i was at that could even touch that thing. now i dont ride much pipe, but the biggest pipe i was in on the east coast might of had ten foot walls, and that would be just about most resorts from dirty jersy down. and though bigsky didnt have much for a park last year, they still had features bigger then most eastcoast resorts. buts still, gotta give to the east coast for biggest park varieties ive ever been to. mounatin creek, one of the tops mt.s on my list...
