It's very hard to get to when the powder really comes down, it's too expensive and requires Guides most of the time, but what a unique experience. All you've head is true, but timing is everything. So popular now, it can be skied out in half a day (especially for unguided). The helicopter noise is a bummer (for EVERYONE in... More

I went there on opening day December 19 2015. I stayed at the village which is like a time warp where everything stopped in the 1900s. I was amazed to see the number of people there for opening day. They say they limit the hill to 400? looked more like 800. So, the future belongs to those who wake up... More

Silverton is a small town that sits in a valley surrounded by the San Juan Mountains. Their Main Street boasts the only paved road in the county. The town has shown great respect in protecting the architecture of a time gone by. A couple of the businesses still deck their employees out in period clothing and it gives the town... More

We took the train from Durango to silverton. The trip was amazing. We loved the ride up and back down. Shopped in town and had a great lunch. It snowed while we were there. Just stunning!

Guides are amazing and terrain is great. Skied Portillo Chile and Jackson Hole and would compare Silverton favorably with either. The hikes, buses that pick you up, and tent just add to the experience.

An amazing experience. We hiked to some of the most incredible terrain and skied fresh tracks for three days! Our guide, Chris S., was great.

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
