If you pick up any ski magazine, you’ll see that Silverton Mountain has earned a reputation sort of like the North Shore of Hawaii–the kind of place that has great snow even when traditional resorts in the area have been skied down to crud. The skiing can be very steep if that’s what you’re looking for, but the truth is that our heli operation provides the best and most flexible ski day anywhere, from the 25-degree Grassy Bowl all the way up to the 50-degree entrance into Gnar Couloir.
Silverton is the only heli-operation in the Lower 48 that offers single drops in addition to all day heli skiing. That means you can ski our normal lift-accessed backcountry all day with one or two additional heli laps at $179 per person per drop. We also offer a $999-per-person full-day heli package where we get you six runs in terrain that can rival the Canadian Alps.
