We left Durango heading to Silverton and went across The Million Dollar Highway to Silverton. It's a beautiful drive. Lots of mountains and many valleys can be seen. The Durango-Silverton train is traveling below in the valleys. It's just one of the prettiest mountain ranges that we have seen in the West. The town of Silverton is a very interesting... More

Absolutely breath taking... I've been here during the summer and during the dead of winter. Stunningly different in the snow. Only suggestion, be okay with staying a day or two if you go during the winter. If you get snowed in, you might be there until the plows come clear the roads. Of course, it's a true adventure if you... More

Great trails and dirt roads for the OHV enthusiast. Beautiful country, high peaks and clear, beautiful streams & lakes. Wild flowers are phenomenal, especially in July. Snow in the High Country in June.

It really is a highway filled with million dollar views driving from Durango though Silverton to Ouray. We stopped in Silverton to walk through some of the shops and there are some very interesting items in the various stores from the typical tourist t-shirts and trinkets to really nice hand woven goods and native American artworks. There are also some... More

Everyone wants to ski powder, right? But most ski areas have become a sharkfeed frenzy of hardcharging aggro feeders, fur choked, jewel laden, gold chain prancing wannabes with whom no one wants to spend time or space. Enter Silverton Mountain. Yes it's steep, yes you'll hike a little to a lot depending on your objectives. And yes, they have a... 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
