Snowy dreams of riding heli-assisted terrain have become more of reality for some thanks to Silverton Mountain. The area is exploring a new heli bump option this winter where riders can tack on laps for a mere fraction of what it costs at big heli outfitters. From the Gnar Couloir to massive open bowls, there’s no lack of terrain.
