Any suggestions for a 4-7 mile round trip summit near Dillon? Will only have my snowshows and micospikes with me...Thanks in advance!

Buffalo Mountain is 4.5 miles and 3000 feet. Probably just need snowshoes. Its the stratavolcano looking peak towering over Silverthorne as you drive west from Eisenhower and accessed from the top of Wildernest housing development (Trailhead is at very top of the hill) Ptarmigan Point on the other side of route 9, accessed from up behind the Old Chicago (in Silverthorne). Peak 1 is a nice grunt, might be a tad dicey with snow, but nothing insane, accessed from Mount Royal Trailhead at 2nd Frisco exit.

Eccles Pass is around 8.5 miles roundtrip, very scenic, Deming Peak is a quick jaunt from there if you want a summit. Lastly, Uneva Peak from Vail Pass is another easy jaunt.
