The mountain lived up to the expectations as a place of raw beauty which provided an adrenaline-fueled weekend of skiing. It’s a super rustic and barebones skiing experience that fosters a great sense of camaraderie among skiers/riders. As a skier who has managed steep terrain...More

This area has wonderful views. It is also home to one of the most rock slide areas in the world. The town of Silverton is a Funky place where people open their businesses when they feel like it. A great place and views.
