A high-res trail map from Bridger is kind of like snowboard porn. See that shaded area? That's the raw dog Ridge Terrain where you need an avalanche transceiver to even ride. Incredible stuff. Bridger has been churning out super solid all-mountain riders for decades and all of them are impervious to cold. BB is a non-profit community resort so adult day tickets are under $50. (On this entire list only Mt. Baker competes with Bridger for straight bang-for-buck.)
