Silverton Mountain, CO has just one chairlift that carries visitors into its terrain, which is for advanced and expert skiers or riders, and avalanche gear is a compulsory requirement in order to ride the lift due to the unpatrolled and ungroomed nature of Silverton. Think of it as a backcountry resort.
Imagine a place where the average total snowfall of over 400 inches exceeds the amount of daily visitors. Advanced and expert only riding, no groomers, no clearcut runs and a real mountain experience with plenty of adventure on tap. All thrills no frills.
In addition to Silverton Mountain’s 1,819 acres of lift-accessed skiing, Silverton also serves as a base area for over 22,000 acres of helicopter- and cat-accessed skiing. Uniquely, Silverton is only open Thursday through Sunday from December to April and during certain times of the year, all visitors must be accompanied by a guide.
One such guiding business, Silverton Powdercats, is up for sale. From their own blog:
