There has been no new snowfall in Buffalo this week, spokeswoman Patty Bills said. But the snow is holding up and officials are grooming the trails to keep the base in place. The east side of the Big Horn Mountains received more snow out of the recent storm. Sawmill near Hunter has a base of up to 23 inches of snow. Powder River Pass has a base of 29 inches.
The lodge on Highway 14-A at Burgess Junction is holding its own, even though there was no additional snow this week, spokeswoman Jeannette Tinn said Wednesday. Snow is expected Saturday and Sunday.
