Silver Mountain’s (aka "Brokelift Mountain”) maintenance practices and lifting system are so bad one should worry about your personal safety here. Beware, there are no state lift inspections in Idaho. Silver's antiquated lifts would not pass inspection in other states. Even worse, they run lifts with known major defects. For example, the resort ran Chair 4 to complete failure even though they have known for years hat it had a major bullwheel shaft defect. This easily could have caused a fatality. Also a Chair 5 lift tower collapsed this year from neglected inspection and Chair 2 broke the second President's Day weekend in two years requiring mass rope evacuation! For your health and safety, STAY AWAY FROM THIS JOKE OF AN OPERATION!!!
