Silver Mountain closed down after the Inland Northwest was placed under a Wind Chill Advisory yesterday morning, meaning wind chill temperatures were potentially dangerous. Wind chill temperatures were reportedly in the single-digits to negative teens Tuesday morning.

According to a Facebook post shared by the Idaho ski area, “dangerous weather conditions” prompted the closure. Nearby Idaho ski areas Schweitzer and Mt. Spokane continued operations Tuesday with limited runs available.

Silver Mountain reopened today and, at the time of this writing, the current temperature there was 3ºF.

  1. Lookout Pass Ski Area (Idaho & Montana) was open as well, and guests enjoyed a great time under a sunny sky. Most guests know how to dress for colder temperatures out here in the PNW. I was out for 3 hours straight and never got cold. Snow and grooming were amazing.
