Silverton Mountain
About Silverton Mountain

Silverton is the only ski resort of its kind in Colorado. Riders are required to have proper avalanche gear: beacon, probe pole, shovel, and a Colorado hiking pass. Only one two-person lift exists at Silverton and all the terrain is expert, double-black diamond.

The pitches start at 30° (your steepest piste at any resort in Colorado) and the angels get as vertical as 55°. After you reach the top of the lift you can traverse and hike to more terrain and bowls.

Since most of the runs are down avalanche chutes, the amount of open terrains changes depending on snow conditions. Safety is first priority at Silverton. No matter where you go, you are going to get some powder.

There's no mountain village at Silverton. There is an old school bus that acts as a rental shop and a tent that acts as a lodge. Nearby Silverton, CO (15 minutes) offers lodging, dining, and everything you would need when on a ski trip in what feels like the middle of nowhere.

Silverton is an old mining town with wide streets and lots of history.

Reasons to Go:
Steepest terrain in the state; Deep powder and fresh lines.
