Being in Silverton is very much like stepping back in time; the shops are well-stocked & lively in the summer, & there are many eating establishments & diversions, such as the Silverton railroad trip to create a lovely day! The main street is lined with shops of all sorts catering to tourists---& the original/refreshed architecture from the "Old West" (1880s,... More

We were seven guys traveling from Norway to Colorado to skii. We early decided that we had to visit Silverton Mountain. What a spesial place. The town is small and charming, and we found both comfy accommodations and food. The one lift (with no safety) takes you up the mountain, and the different groups go different places. We booked a...

Beautiful mountain scenery. Foliage was changing just absolutely stunning. Enjoyed the train with breath taking views. The town of Silverton would be a place I would like to stay a few days in. I was in Durango but plan to return to Silverton when I have more time.

Drove from Durango to Silverton. The fall colors were breathtaking. The road is very, very curvy so the driver must pay attention and drive very slowly. Plan to pull out to take pictures.

I can't believe all the times I have been to Silverton and never driven up this road. It is beyond beautiful. It is a dirt road, but is in good condition. We were in our razor 4x4 and went on over the mountain to continue to 4x4 in the mountains. We highly recommend this drive. If you choose to keep... More

It's very hard to get to when the powder really comes down, it's too expensive and requires Guides most of the time, but what a unique experience. All you've head is true, but timing is everything. So popular now, it can be skied out in half a day (especially for unguided). The helicopter noise is a bummer (for EVERYONE in... More

I went there on opening day December 19 2015. I stayed at the village which is like a time warp where everything stopped in the 1900s. I was amazed to see the number of people there for opening day. They say they limit the hill to 400? looked more like 800. So, the future belongs to those who wake up... More

Silverton is a small town that sits in a valley surrounded by the San Juan Mountains. Their Main Street boasts the only paved road in the county. The town has shown great respect in protecting the architecture of a time gone by. A couple of the businesses still deck their employees out in period clothing and it gives the town... More

We took the train from Durango to silverton. The trip was amazing. We loved the ride up and back down. Shopped in town and had a great lunch. It snowed while we were there. Just stunning!

Guides are amazing and terrain is great. Skied Portillo Chile and Jackson Hole and would compare Silverton favorably with either. The hikes, buses that pick you up, and tent just add to the experience.
