Winter Storm Results: Silverton, CO

Shaquille O’Neal would suffocate and die!  In the past nine days, Silverton Mountain in Colorado has received a whopping 83 inches of new show.  For those mathematically impaired, that’s seven feet of powder, the same height as your typical NBA center.  Never heard of SilvertonSkiing Magazine describes the mountain succinctly as the "Best resort you’ve never skied," ranking it #1 in Steeps and #1 in Powder in 2004.  No groomers, no cut trails, just straight-up black diamond, expert terrain.  No need to fret how to get down, as skiing Silverton consists of guided groups of eight skiers or less.  If you have the skills, Silverton has the thrills. 

With winter storms pounding Colorado, now would be a good time to check a ski experience you’ve never had.  Memorable, with a capital M.  The mountain, the lodging, and the apres ski action are all uniquely Silverton.  If you’ve never been, you can thank me later for hippin’ you.
