Silverton Mountain

Explore what this inexpensive winter vacation area has to offer. Activities include alpine skiing, advanced backcountry skiing, snowcat skiing, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, ice climbing, ice skating, sledding, snowshoe hikes, and snowmobiling. The area is one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets and is an excellent alternative to expensive winter resorts. Just six miles from the town of Silverton and 30 miles from Ouray, Silverton Mountain offers extreme skiing at its finest.

Expert Skiing

The resort is open to only expert and advanced skiers and snowboarders. It was once only known for its incredible snowcat skiing and snowboarding and now has one double chairlift accessing the steepest, most adventure-filled skiing. Still, a significant draw to the area for the adventurous is snowcat skiing and heli-skiing. Note that the area tour guides and operators require advanced reservations. In addition, the Durango ski area, once known as Purgatory, is only 20 miles away. Kendall Mountain Ski Area is right in Silverton and offers great beginner skiing and numerous family activities. This famous summer vacation region is fast becoming a Colorado winter wonderland.

Off the Slopes

Join over 200,000 annual passengers who travel on the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad amid snow-covered towering mountain peaks. Stay in nearby Ouray, a small western town with charm, comfort, and experience ice climbing at its best. Become immersed in breathtaking natural scenic beauty with remarkable frozen streams, waterfalls, and winter wildlife viewing. In town, browse through the numerous quaint shops, galleries, and restaurants, or take a walking tour and lodge in a genuine turn-of-the-century hotel bed and breakfast. Available are multiple car rentals, shuttle services, jeep rentals, and other transportation options in the immediate areas. This is a place for a memorable Colorado Rocky Mountain outdoor experience in the spectacular San Juan Mountains, yet an inexpensive vacation.

Getting Here

Silverton and Ouray are just an hour’s drive from Durango’s airport and Telluride’s regional airport. Enjoy the drive up Highway 550, or take the historic train.
