"We are thrilled to announce this new reciprocal season pass program with some of the best independent ski area operators in the country," said Aaron Brill, CEO of Silverton Mountain.  "Silverton Mountain season passes were already a tremendous value with access to 1,819 acres of the best adventure skiing to be found anywhere on the planet and limited numbers of skiers each day, but now with the addition of 20 days of free skiing, an exclusive private mountain day, and half-price heli skiing this makes the $149 Pass the best deal in skiing!"
