The Bridgeport Winter Rec Area is now closed to motorized use.

The Bridgeport Winter Rec Area is now closed to motorized use. The BWRA opening and closing dates are determined by the Bridgeport Winter Rec Area Management plan (2010):

  • The BWRA will open no earlier than the first Saturday in December and when a
    minimum of 24” of snow is available at the Leavitt Road and Highway 108
    junction.
  • The BWRA will close no later than the last Sunday in April. The following
    indicators will determine if an earlier closing is necessary:
    – 12” or less of snow is available at the Leavitt Road and Highway 108
    junction
    – 10% or more bare ground at Leavitt Lake.

Skiing and non motorized use are permitted year round. The Leavitt Lake Road gate will remain closed until the road is snow free to Leavitt Lake, in order to prevent resource damage such as vehicles driving off road around the snow and damaging sensitive alpine plants.
