Silverton Mountain, CO, plans to install its second chairlift as early as this summer, much to the delight of skiers and boarders.
When San Juan County originally permitted the Silverton ski area, the permit included two additional future lifts located on private property within the ski area boundary, a base lodge, and ten overnight chalets (which are still planned to be developed in the future). There was 100% local support at the recent public hearing in Silverton for the new 2nd lift.
Silverton will offer unguided season passes for next season for only $199 with an early bird purchase. Once the new lift is confirmed, pricing will likely increase, so it will be good to lock in for next season.
“We are really excited for the future of Silverton Mountain and our second chairlift that will access phenomenal terrain!”.
– Aaron Brill, Silverton Mountain’s founder
Silverton is located in an Opportunity Zone and currently seeking serious investors with a deep passion for skiing as it moves forward with its exciting path ahead. Silverton is having a record snow season this year, so it’s an excellent opportunity to scope out the new terrain to be accessed via heli ahead of the new lift.

Way to go Silverton Mountain. So excited for this! It’s going to open up soooo much more terrain!
It was only a language change from an already approved chairlift plan from the beginning. They can actually add 2 more but only adding one more for now. The previous approved language was “surface loader” aka tow rope. Silverton Mountain requested it be a chairlift instead of a tow rope which was approved by County Commissioners at their meeting Jan 25th. They were not required to have a public hearing but decided to at their previous meeting where this came up. There was a legal brief in the local newspaper advertising the public hearing. I was in attendance of that meeting & there were locals there. All were there to express support of the “amended” language.
Nonsense, not one hundred percent local support!! Stop lying. The owners are so despised in silverton that they live in Alaska now.
