We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience.

Overview

Located in Silverton, Colorado and opened in 2002, Silverton Mountain is an advanced and expert skier and rider only mountain. One double chairlift accesses 1,819 acres of the steepest and deepest un-groomed powder and an additional 22,000 acres are accessible by hiking and helicopter. The unique experience of Silverton is that of an extreme terrain backcountry adventure, and certain times of the season will not allow unguided skiing or snowboarding. Averaging an annual snowfall of 400”+, the resort limits unguided skiers and riders to 475 skiers or less a day to encourage ecological balance, and requires everyone to carry an avalanche beacon, probe pole, and shovel (rentals are available). Guided tours as well as heli-skiing are available. Avalanche training is not required.
