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

As part of our Colorado vacation we included the mining town of Silverton. It was an immediate hit because my husband is a Harley-Davidson fan, and collects the tee-shirts from each one we visit. He is now able to say he's been to the highest Harley retail store in the country. We love the hospitality of the Harley stores, and... More

Silverton is a beautiful little mining town that is nestled in the Colorado mountains. It is amazing to see the little village from high above the highway as you make your way down into town. Cute restaurants and gift shops...and a wonderful steam train ride from Durangp to Silverton if you like.

This area is a bit depressed and really depends on the tourist trade but it is a beautiful place to visit. We came up the Million Dollar Highway and the scenery is just incredible. Cute shops, a small museum and the end depot for the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad. That train was quite impressive. Would like to come back to... More

I hit Silverton Mountain a couple of weeks back. Fortunately I'd read the reviews and got myself in decent shape before heading out there. I run about 3 miles a day 4/5 times a week. I was sucking wind up there, but at least I could keep up (with a moderate paced group). I was flying from the East Coast,... More

Small groups with guides, great powder, rugged Colorado mountains and an all around adventuresome atmosphere.

This mountain is by far the most dangerous in North America. There are no easy ways down and you need to be fit, acclimated and technically adept. I had a wonderful experience but the rest of my group, all advanced/expert riders, did not due to lack of fitness. I'm writing this review because I think people should understand what they're...

Silverton is a great old town with lots of things to see and do, we stayed in the Grand Imperial Hotel, it is old and the floor's sqeek when you walk on the old boards and the furniture goes along with the vintage of the hotel. The mountain is beautiful and on the 4th of July they really have a... More
