Full review

I have been to Silver a number of times and it always amazes me how rundown their lodge is and what little effort they make to update the resort. The skies are gray the majority of the time and wind is a constant problem. Although there are a number of runs to choose from and great glades, the grooming of the main trails leaves a bit to be desired. Finally, as has been stated a number of times, the lifts are constantly erratic and the operators consistently rude.
In the time it takes to ride the Gondola to the top, you could be at a much better managed ski resort on the border, Lookout.
