Silverton open for skiing today, with discounted lift tickets

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 2, 2009 5:45 am

Today, Silverton Mountain in Colorado is open for skiing and snowboarding, and lift tickets are only $39 through Sunday December 6th. Although temperatures have been rather warm in Durango, the base elevation of Silverton Mountain is at 10,400 feet and temperatures have stayed cool (morning lows have been around 1 degree).  While snow depths on the upper mountain range between 30 and 40 inches, cover is pretty thin on the lower mountain, so rock skis may be best.

For the first two weeks of December, Silverton will continue to operate Wednesday through Sunday if Durango remains closed midweek.
