The weekend includes two guided days of skiing at Silverton, with one heli drop – January 13th and 14th with a welcome party on Friday, January 12th. The Women’s Big Mountain Camp’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. Participants will receive brown bag lunches on Saturday and Sunday, plus fun giveaways. Participants are grouped with women of similar ability and motivation. The rad Silverton mountain guides help make the mountain’s expansive terrain more accessible and less intimidating by providing big mountain ski tips throughout the weekend. The Women’s Big Mountain Camp is for ages 16 and up, with ability level of high intermediate or above, including some experience in variable snow and steep entrances. The Women’s Big Mountain Camp package price is $699, a smokin’ deal you won’t find again this season. Don’t miss out on the best weekend ever with old friends and new! To sign up please email us at

Silverton New Year’s Eve

There is no better way to usher in the New Year than surrounded by 13,000’ peaks. While other Colorado resorts deal with busy holiday madness, Silverton is the antithesis of that. New Year’s Eve festivities will include all of your favorite things; skiing, a party, drinks, and ski buddies new and old. Enjoy the coldest beer in San Juan County with an après drinks at the on-mountain yurt bar followed by a New Year Eve party and walk across the street to your hotel. Silverton Mountain lacks the crowds of other ski areas over the holidays since it exclusively serves advanced and expert skiers and limits the number of skiers/snowboarders allowed on the mountain. (Guides are required to ski off of the chairlift until Mid-March and are included in lift ticket price.) Package includes 2 days of Guided Skiing, NYE party with dinner and 2 drink coupons, and 2 après ski drink tickets for the mountain. MORE DETAILS AND PRICING TO COME

Clauson Classic

Be Like John” is a motto at Silverton Mountain. John Clauson was our Assistant Snow Safety director, guide and friend. No mission was too hard, no load was too much, and nothing couldn’t be done without a smile and a humble admiration for the beauty of the San Juan Mountains.

This is an endurance style race, where we have 2 check points on the mountain and racers see how many times they can lap each checkpoint.  The event brings awareness to and benefits Be The Match, which is a bone marrow registry.  This event started after long time patroller and snow safety director, John Clauson, passed away from Lukemia.
