About Silverton Mountain
Silverton Mountain is a new expert and advanced only ski/snowboard facility. One double chairlift will access the steepest, most powder filled skiing this side of Valdez, Alaska. Silverton Mountain is located in southern Colorado in the heart of the San Juans and was opened for business on January 19th, 2002.
Snow is no worry at this elevation. Winter comes early and heavy and that makes for some serious conditions. Riders are required to bring an avalanche beacon, probe pole, and shovel as well as a Colorado hiking pass.
A team of expert ski patrollers engage in constant avalanche mitigation work. However, guests are reminded to observe one's surroundings and make the appropriate decisions on where to ride.
In addition to skiing and boarding, participants may take classes at the Silverton Outdoor Learning and Recreation Center (SOLRC). Topics are diverse and will include avalanche safety, mountaineering instruction, and backcountry ski/snowboard instruction as well as many others.
