TR: Not-so traveled Steamboat backcountry

(Last Updated On: March 23, 2016)

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.

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 🙂
