  • 1
    January 11 Arrive at Durango La Plata airport by 4pm to meet the group for transfer to Silverton Mountain. We'll check into the Grand Imperial Hotel and meet up with our guides for a welcome gathering, snow safety briefing and short ski movie to prepare for our first day of riding.

    January 12 Wake up and eat breakfast together at 7:30 am. We'll meet at the mountain at 8:30 to pack our lunches and make sure we're first in line for the only chairlift at the mountain. There are no groomed runs, but we'll take a short hike to access large, open bowls and some steep, tight chutes. At the end of the run, we'll head back to the lift via shuttle or by foot. We can expect three to six runs each day.

    January 13 Repeat! If it's snowing, we'll spend our day riding through the trees. This could be a great day for a longer hike from the chair to ski Corn Factory or the Billboard on the West Face of the mountain. After a full day, we'll head back to the tent for apres ski and then into town to share a meal at the Avalanche Brewing Co.

    January 14 Rise and shine for our final day of guided skiing. We'll have our bags packed before we head to the mountain at 8:30. We'll get a full day on the mountain, about 10,000 ft. vertical.

Area Information
The SIlverton area

Silverton Mountain is the highest and steepest ski area in North America with a peak elevation of 13,487’ and with no easy way down. Besides avalanche mitigation work, the mountain is left in its natural state with no cut runs. The base lies at 10,400’ with a single lift dropping you off at 12,300’. The chairlift unloads at the top of a beautiful cirque which provides easy hiking along a ridge to access terrain that can total 3,000’ vertical drop in a single run.

Silverton Mountain is pretty close to the most pure skiing experience one can find today, an epic mountain, bountiful snowfall (the deep and light Colorado kind!), and none of the distractions of other ski areas (crowds!)
