Many people enjoy playing on “the mountain” just outside of Buffalo year round, with the Pole Creek Recreation Area being a highlight during the winter.
Listen to Aaron Kessler, President of Powder Pass Nordic Club outline the club’s concerns with the Forest Service’s proposed clear-cut project known as the Pole Creek Vegetation Management Project.
The Pole Creek Nordic Area, which includes several miles of well-used trails, would be significantly impacted and the club is asking that the area be exempted from the project.

However, that area is a very small part of the overall proposed area subject to timber management in the Pole Creek and Doyle Creek areas.
