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

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
