7414 State Road (Rte. 240), Colden, NY 14033
Buffalo Ski Club, the area's closest, most affordable and most family-friendly skiing and snowboarding facility begins its 75th Anniversary in 2006. Located on Route 240 in Colden, just outside West Falls, Buffalo Ski Club is only minutes from anywhere in the Buffalo metropolitan area.
Buffalo Ski Club brings together three ski areas — Sitzmarker Ski Club, Ski Tamarack and Buffalo Ski Club—and covers 300 acres with 43 trails ranging in terrain from expert to beginner. The area is serviced by two chair lifts, two t-bars and two handle lifts. Both stationary and mobile snowmaking guns can cover most of the area to supplement Mother Nature's offerings.
As the region's premier family ski area Buffalo Ski Club boasts a top-notch snowsports school. PSIA certified instructors offer private and group lessons in alpine skiing, telemark skiing and snowboarding for students of all ages and abilities. Popular lesson packages are the Extreme Team and Sitz Kids. The Buffalo Ski Club Race Team is comprised of skiers ages 8-18 who compete region wide in Niagara Frontier Ski Council events.
Three lodges are spread out over the club's terrain, each with its own personality. The hub of activity is the Tamarack Lodge on Route 240 with Snowsports School headquarters, National Ski Patrol headquarters, attended nursery, snack bar and picnic facilities. Up top on Lower East Hill Road is the Sitzmarker Lodge with a functioning kitchen, grills, picnic tables and a fireplace. It is the site of the popular Saturday night Pot Luck dinners and many club parties. Farther south on Lower East Hill is the Buffalo Lodge, a smaller, quieter lodge with an adult fireplace room for apres-ski relaxation.
