Do your homework before coming. This is not a ski resort. It is a tremendous skiing experience that requires a guide and some on-mountain hiking to get to many of the areas. They terrain is severe with no easy way down. One 2-person chair runs you up the mountain, and you may use one of their shuttles to get you... More

This was a very fun and learning place to stop by. Still feels like an old town. The shops are full of interesting knick knacks. Stop by the visitor's center on the way in for some useful information about the town. The weather was fantastic over the Memorial Day weekend. The view from the Million Dollar Highway down on the...

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
