Buffalo Pass is one of the most heavily hit areas of the Steamboat backcountry skiing zones. Soda Mountain is the icon – Heck, there’s even a cat-skiing operation there. At first glance, the zone can appear over used. But, if you think outside the box and look just a little further, you can find your quiet places.
Larry and I went to check out a zone he’d been scoping for quite some time, adjacent to Soda Mountain.
It had been at least a week since the last fresh snow in the Steamboat backcountry, but it was still untouched, untracked, and left for the taking. Larry drops in.
After hours of clouds, the sun came out to greet us.
Right now, we’re in a big storm cycle. But, when the powder dries up, and your stashes get skied, remember that there’s likely more powder out there. You just need to look a little further 🙂
