How Does it Work? Your Unguided Season Pass is good for unguided skiing only. However, it is also valid for half-price standby heli drops and discounted $79 standby tickets during the Guided Only Season. It is not possible to call ahead to check on availability for standby openings, just show up and “standby” until we know if there is space available. Standby options are not guaranteed and are subject to daily availability at the last minute (hence standing by). This means waiting until all the full priced guided skiers and/or heli skiers have gotten on. If there is space in an existing group, we will fit you in. We cannot formulate an additional group based on standby skiers, there has to be space in an existing group to get in on standby. All standby heli skiing requires a lift ticket.

When Can I Pick Up My Pass?
You may pick up your pass at the office, or at the tent at Silverton Mountain, or you can have it mailed to you. All passholders must check-in each day at the tent prior to boarding the lift. Your Season Pass and personal photo ID (driver’s license etc.) must be shown in order to receive your ticket for the day. Please keep in mind that we cannot call the ticket offices at A-Basin, Monarch, or Powderhorn. You will need to show your Silverton Mountain Pass and photo ID in order to claim your free days at those areas. There will be a $35 charge for all lost season passes.

Transfers or Refunds:
Nothing associated with the pass is transferable or refundable. We are unable to offer refunds for injuries. The Passholder and only the Passholder will be able to use the ski days at other mountains or at Silverton Mountain. Passes may be suspended or revoked for not following mountain rules. Avalanche equipment must be carried at all times when skiing/snowboarding at Silverton Mountain.

Terrain: The goal is to open as much terrain as possible to unguided skiing every day (based on snow safety). The unguided boundary constantly shifts around the mountain as the snowpack changes. Guided skiers during the unguided season are allowed access into certain areas of the mountain that may not be ready for unguided skiers or may be too challenging to manage from a ski patrol perspective or signage/rope needs. There may be pockets of hazards or temperature fluctuations that make areas better suited for guided or unguided skiing on any given day. There is no arbitrary boundary between the two which typically allows a tremendous amount of terrain to be open for both unguided and guided skiing every day. On any given day there is usually more unguided expert terrain open at Silverton Mountain than any other ski area in North America.

Thank you again for your Silverton Mountain Pass purchase. We look forward to skiing or riding with you this winter!
