Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

High Trail Trees

the descent is a more open treed run that is on a northern aspect. it is relatively short, and has very few technical terrain features. As you travel farther north and ski the more NW aspects, the terrain becomes steeper. Look out for stumps and deadfall

Details

Buffalo is clearly visible when descending from the tunnel towards Silverthorne.  The town is literally built at the base of this peak.  Several good skiing options exist.

How to Get There

The most direct way to access this peak (and several of the skiing options) is from the Ryan Gulch (Buffalo Cabin) trail head.  From the Silverthorne exit off I-70, go north on hwy 9.  At the first stop light, take a left (west) on Wildernest Rd.  Follow the road thru several sharp turns until you get to the parking area on the left where the road widens to accommodate 15 or so cars (basically the highest elevation point along the road).  The trail begins on the opposite side of the road.
