Raging Buffalo
Snowboard Ski Park

The management of Raging Buffalo has been excited working with the Forest Preserve and the County Roads Division in anticipation of our new expanded hill and brand new lodge. Unfortunately, working with Mother Nature has not been as exciting...Due to the record breaking rains we experienced this spring and the unseasonably wet fall we’ve had, we are behind on our expansion. For this reason we have decided not to open for the current winter season, our 26th Year, while the remainder of the dirt is relocated and the lodge is constructed.  We are also entertaining investor and management partnerships as we look to grow into a more year round facility upon our completion of the expansion. For additional information and inquiries please contact us at info@ragingbuffalo.com

Raging Buffalo Snowboard Park & Ski Area

As the sport of snowboarding was growing and maturing during the early 90's, the founders of Raging Buffalo saw that snowboarders were being treated as second class citizens at the local ski areas.  As a result, the concept of a "snowboard exclusive" area was born.  It was this "snowboarder's only" stance that created the most buzz in the snowboard community

A lease was arranged with the Kane County Forest Preserve and in January of 1993 the ski area previously known as Buffalo Park Ski Area became the site of Raging Buffalo Snowboard Park -- officially the world's first snowboard exclusive terrain park.

We invite you to join snowboarders from all over the midwest to see what all the hype is about.  The terrain park changes constantly to keep the hills fresh.  Raging Buffalo Snowboard Park contains two rope tows, half pipes, kickers, table tops, staircase and a magic carpet on the beginner hill.
