POWDER SKIING November 10, 2012


This most recent winter storm at Silverton Mountain, Colorado loaded up the mountain with as much as 2-3 feet of fresh snow! A few lucky ski patrollers jumped on the chairlift today and headed to the top of Silverton Mountain to make the first ski turns of the 2012/13 ski season. A fresh blanket of snow covered the mountain making for a fun ski day.

Both La Nina and El Nino tend to bless this microclimate, which tends to make Silverton Mountain a reliable snow location.

The official start of the ski season is slated for December 15, 2012. Silverton Mountain is the highest ski area in North America with a peak of 13,487’ providing for skiing on all natural snow as early as August in previous years.
