Unlike the ski area experience where tracks, chop and bumps quickly trash the fresh powder after a few runs, the terrain on Buffalo Pass usually holds snow for weeks after a storm and you’ll be mostly skiing or riding on untracked or mildly tracked snow throughout the day. This untracked experience is the name of the game for us and what you as a level I skier or rider would love to experience over and over again.
Our Level I and Level II trips utilize the same pick ups and drop offs on a variety of ridge lines on Buffalo Pass. Our Level I groups stay mostly out of the aspen forests while sticking to the open glades in blue/black type terrain pitch. Whist our Level II groups are all already confident in powder and comfortable in trees, our Level I-ers need a little more open terrain to gain confidence and to figure out the powder turn before heading into steeper or thicker treed zones.
