With a peak elevation of 13,487’, Silverton delivers 1,819 acres of bowls, chutes, cliffs and beautiful terrain in every direction. Its base lies at 10,400’, with a single lift dropping you off at the 12,300’ elevation. The chairlift unloads at the top of a cirque that provides easy hiking along a ridge to access terrain that can total 3,000’ vertical drop in a single run. Although the mountain caps the amount of unguided skiers to fewer than 475 a day, most days see fewer than 80 skiers on the mountain. For mega thrills, Silverton’s All Day Heli Pass indulges with six drops in 22,000-plus acres of terrain reserved exclusively for pass purchasers. Closes April 10th.
