COLORADO’S MILLION DOLLAR HIGHWAY A TRIP FROM SILVERTON TO OURAY ON US550N (COLORADO’S HIDDEN BYWAYS IV) This is a road trip that starts in Durango, Colorado, and passes through the towns of Silverton and down to Ouray, Colorado and beyond. If you are a lover of operational historic steam trains, as I am, you MUST GO TO THE DURANGO &... More

Situated in a valley leading north of Silverton is one of the most original, true to it's spirit skiresort I've ever been to. The mountain is a hard master with thinn air, steep and technical challanges. So better be well prepared physically. I will be next time... :)

This ski area is not your family ski area..... double diamond expert skiers only!!! Easily competes with the most snow in Colorado every year. Don't expect good conditions until January though.... but amazing conditions will go thru March. This ski area has one chairlift and from that point, most of the runs are hike to terrain, led by guides. Avy... More

While in Durango Colorado we got the steam train to old mining town Silverton. You are transported back to the 1800's. The journey takes all day from 8.30 returning at 6 pm as it's an 8 hour round trip. The train takes you through the most stunning scenery along the way. Children will love it. There is a local historian... More

Super little town in the beautiful Colorado mountains. The biggest draw for tourists is to see the old train come in from Durango. It is a beautiful old steam engine and exciting to watch coming into the station. Our 4 grandchildren loved the stage coach ride with "Sony & Cher" the horses and their colorful driver. Great little town for... More

I liked the old buildings and the history of the town. The old buildings have such character and charm. I loved the train. We rode it on our first time in Silverton and this time we watched it come into town, still exciting to see it round the mountain and blow the whistle. i loved looking at the mountains around...

Great place for beautiful mountains and places to see and shop. We went in the Old Arcade and it was great. The ladies in there were so friendly and helpful. We checked out several other places to shop but went back to the Old Arcade. When we asked if there were other places they were very helpful and honest in... More

This is my kind of mountain. There is no running water at the area and that says it all. People don't come to hang out, look cool, and drink wine while they dine in a fancy restaurant. They come for the real goods - skiing! Spending a season or more at a normal resort you will inevitably learn the mountain,... More

If you are a serious skier, you probably already know about it's reputation. No matter how good you are, there is terrain to challenge you. If you have any doubts about your abilities, this is not the place for you. I have seen grown men freeze up in fear in certain locations. If you can afford it, do a heli... More
