Magical experience at Silverton, absolutely blown away with my day there. Group of 7 of us with a local fill in hanging with Krysta our guide (also makes some artwork/swag for the retail store check it out!) and getting all the goods. We scored HUGE with 3 days of snowfall before opening on a Thursday with nothing but fresh lines and fantastic riding. Krysta was a killer guide for the day with tons of knowledge of the terrain and safety procedure and brought us to some hidden gems in the trees on an otherwise high avy risk day. Silverton is not for the faint of heart; their logo is literally someone falling off a cliff for a reason, but for the experienced rider/skier looking to test themselves and visit a more remote (and staggeringly beautiful) area of CO, Silverton is a MUST for any salty powderhound who thinks they can hang with the big boys....

Just an incredible experience from start to finish. Strip away all of the nonsense of the resorts and you're left with absolutely incredible skiing, knowledgable and thoughtful guides, and some of the most beautiful terrain anywhere in the country. It was like having the top 2/3 of Jackson Hole all but entirely to yourself. Magical. ... Full Review

This is truly a special place. After not riding for 2 years after having kids, the 9 runs I had in 2 days (including 2 heli drops) has completely filled up my stoke cup way more than a ton more days along i70 ever could. The terrain is amazing, the guides were truly awesome and the overall vibe of the mountain is such a breath of fresh air with how over-run most places are these days. Spent 1 day with Krista and could not recommend her highly enough! Eli also provided a great day out and in the heli. Visit this place as soon as you can!!... Full Review

Who has anything but love for Silverton Mountain??? This place is simply unbelievable, the guides are amazing, the staff is amazing and the skiing is everything you have heard and more. I wish I could ski here every day, nothing like it left on this continent that's for sure. A true "ski area" and should be on every serious skiers must visit list. Thanks for all the hospitality and I will be back again soon.... Full Review

Kim was the perfect guide, she was patient with our group and led us to some amazing terrain. Our group did one heli drop, and guided for the remainder of the day. I would love to do more heli drops based on future weather conditions.... Full Review

This was a bucket list trip but now I will be back. One of my 5 best days ever. Add a Heli drop. It is WELL worth it. The mountain and the guides are amazing. We found awesome powder on every run and it hadn't snowed in two weeks. I can not recommend this place enough. ... Full Review

What a fantastic place. The poster who said Valhalla absolutely nailed it. Spent a couple days here with a friend and had the time of our lives. I’ve skied everywhere in NA and Silverton is the most legit of them all. Peak 8, Lone Peak, forget about it. Two weeks without snow and our guides were still putting us in knee deep Pow. Shoutout to Jamie and Rob, two of the most amazing people and guides I’ve met. Everyone at this place is genuinely amazing and awesome, not just “resort friendly” because they have to be. Add some heli goodness on top of it all and bam, life is complete. ... Full Review

WOW!!! I have skied all over the US and BC. I live for POW and steeps and POW. I used to think Snowbird / CB / Squaw for steeps. Wolf creek and Targhee for POW. then we went to Kicking horse and got great POW and steeps in one place. Then we came to Silverton last year and hit it after they were closed for a week with too much snow in March. Check it out https://www.facebook.com/andy.sa.965/videos/10214015632168200/?t=10 The place has ruined me. Just steep everywhere. We only skied the tree side, so not gonna die stuff. but nice 40 degree trees everywhere with bottomless powder untracked all day. 4 runs and we were crushed. I can't think of skiing anywhere out west ever again. It would be yawn inducing. If you are a truly expert skier, then you MUST do it. You must do the travel to ski Valhalla. And I mean travel. Far from Denver especially when 550 was closed. If not, you are just another poser. Go to Vail or Jackson or Whistler. Have fun in the lines and the nightclubs. I will be in Silverton and asleep by 9 exhausted ready to do it again the next day.... Full Review

I had an amazing time at Silverton Mountain. They got snow the night before and we were riding fresh tracks all day. The snow was great and the guides are good at assigning you to groups where you will fit in. (As long as you are honest about yourself) The atmosphere here is like nothing I’ve seen. Everyone is super nice and just there to have a great time. I will be back for more.... Full Review

We had an amazing time at Silverton last week. The staff are incredibly hard working and they managed to provide an experience that can't be matched anywhere else. In a world where people only care about how much vert they can get in a day, Silverton provides a unique experience to people that want to hit big lines, ski in the company of other great skiers, and get a taste of the backcountry. This mountain represents, to me, what skiing is really about and I'm eternally grateful for getting to experience this. Hope to see you all soon!... Full Review
