Big Mountain Betty Weekend: January 16th and 17th
Come social distance at Silverton for the Big Mountain Betty Fest weekend. There’s no better place for experienced female skiers and snowboarders, high intermediate and above (comfortable on black diamond runs) to come together this season–while staying slightly apart. The event includes two guided days of skiing at Silverton, with one heli drop. Big Mountain Betty Fest’s heli drop is the perfect gateway into heliskiing and boarding if you’ve never tried it, or a great way to get your chopper fix in Colorado. Though we won’t be having indoor apres-ski parties, bring your down booties for some tailgate fun in the parking lot after skiing and riding. Participants will receive brown bag lunches on Saturday and Sunday, plus giveaways. Silverton mountain guides help make the mountain’s expansive terrain more accessible and less intimidating and will help split participants into groups of similar ability and motivation while providing big mountain ski tips throughout the weekend.
This Package includes:
- Guided lift tickets for January 16 & 17, 2021
- Lunch at the mountain for January 16 & 17, 2021
- One heli drop
- A great way to social distance on the slopes with awesome women
- Tailgate apres-ski
- Fun SWAG
The Big Mountain Betty Fest weekend package price is $522, a smokin’ deal you won’t find again this season. Don’t miss out on the best weekend ever with old friends and new! Click here to register.

Practical Protocols for Snow Professionals
Steep Life Workshop
Dates for 2021 TBA
Traditional Avalanche and Ski Guide Training has been focused on snow science and snowpit-based methodology, but this leaves out many important practical protocol techniques. In this workshop industry leaders will share the techniques and thought processes they have developed and used in the field. With more than 60+ years of combined experience, this team has spent a lot of time innovating in the mountains and has gained experiences and insights that are essential for ski/snowboard guides, ski patrol and aspiring professionals. Anyone that accesses mountains from the top down or spends time in avalanche terrain can benefit from this cutting-edge workshop offered at Silverton Mountain.
By attending the workshop attendees will:
- Gain a better understanding of how to read mountains
- Learn to skillfully recognize hazards
- Develop a thought process for working larger lines in steeper terrain
The Training Workshop is useful for anyone currently working in avalanche terrain, but is most helpful for Professional Ski Patrollers and Professional Ski/Snowboard Guides working in mid or high alpine terrain.
Attendees should have an existing Level 2 Avalanche or equivalent, professional patrol or ski/board guiding experience, or be an aspiring professional with industry experience.

We look forward to an exciting and educational time with you in the steeps!
