Imagine a place where the average total snowfall of over 400 inches exceeds the amount of daily visitors. Advanced and expert only riding, no groomers, no clearcut runs and a real mountain experience with plenty of adventure on tap. All thrills no frills.
Welcome to Silverton Mountain, Colorado. Here you will find amazing skiing in every direction and one chairlift perfectly located to deliver you to the goods.
Founded in an ancient caldera, Silverton, Colorado is called home by roughly 600 year-round inhabitants. The only township in San Juan County at an elevation of 9,318 feet, this town has roots in mining at the turn of the 20th century, when the mountains were renown for high mineral content and Blair Street was known for its shady ladies. Now the mines are summer tourist attractions, the brothels are hotels, and the mountains are famous for massive amounts of snow. Locals here still know how to make last call and still get first chair no matter how cold it is when they wake up. Be polite, tip well, and try to keep up with a local during unguided season to find a few stashes.
Silverton Mountain is an experience unlike any other. Whether it is your first time here or your 100th, there is always something new to try and a new stash to find. If you’ve never been guided skiing, Silverton Mountain features world-class guides to show you how to ski safely in the best terrain you’ve ever seen.
