Backcountry skiing and riding opportunities are vast and almost limitless here in Colorado. There are tens of thousands of untracked peaks filled with fresh powder for those eager to strap on their skins, fire up their snowmobiles or hire a Colorado backcountry skiing operation like Steamboat Powdercats.
Here in the backcountry of Northwest Colorado, we who call Steamboat Springs home, have an equal opportunity, one which is exciting for those passionate powder skiers and riders who like to earn our turns. Of course, here at Steamboat Powdercats we use our snowcats to transport our guests into the backcountry of Buffalo Pass on the Medicine Bow – Routt National Forest. This mode of transportation, like heli skiing, allows us to access terrain with much less effort than those seeking out their own transport to and from untracked fields of powder. But beyond Buffalo Pass there are many options for those looking to get out in the snow.
