Welcome To

Silverton Mountain

First Timer’s Guide

We’re so stoked that you’re considering Silverton for your next winter trip. We’ve created this page as a guide to catch you up to speed on how things work around here. Silverton is ideal for the expert skier or rider looking for a more wild, off trail experience. Expect to hike to get the goods with the guided skiing. We have a chairlift, but that only gets you so far. If you want to skip the hike, heliskiing runs are available as well as full day heliskiing options. If you want to learn more about the experience, click on the What to Expect link below.
