What to Expect

“Silverton Mountain is pretty close to the most pure skiing experience one can find today, an epic mountain, bountiful snowfall (the deep and light Colorado kind!), and none of the distractions of other ski areas (crowds!).” – Chris Davenport, Professional Skier and Red Bull athlete, Aspen, Colorado

Get ready for a unique lift-served ski adventure! Silverton Mountain skiing is similar to a cross of heli-skiing experience, snow cat skiing, and resort skiing but really unlike anything else in the country. You will be accessing up to 1,819 acres of backcountry type terrain via chairlift and without the big crowds signature to other ski areas.

There are no groomed runs, no cut trails, just loads of nature’s finest black diamond skiing in the U.S.A.
