Police respond to party on Buffalo Pass

A U.S. Forest Service officer on Saturday afternoon alerted the Routt County Sheriff’s Office that 25 to 30 young adults were having a drinking party near the top of Buffalo Pass.

The group, mostly students from Colorado Mountain College, reportedly were skiing and snowboarding and drinking from a keg of beer, deputy Tom Munden said.

Munden and another deputy identified several people that possibly were underage, and the keg owner reportedly agreed to pour out the beer.

The gathering was about 10 miles from Dry Lake Campground.

Little of the beer had been drank before the deputies arrived, and they confirmed none of the participants were intoxicated, Munden said.
