Silverton, CO ~ August 16, 2010 ~
It’s summer, but there is big news at Silverton Mountain. Unguided Season passes will be on sale on 8/23 for only $399! We are hooking up the locals with a limited amount of early bird season passes on sale at nearly half the lowest price ever offered at any time before. Plus the unbelievable season pass deal comes with ½ price helidrops (standby), an additional 14 free ski days at other Colorado Resorts (4 days A Basin, 5 days Monarch, & 5 at Loveland) and $79 guided skiing (standby). If you live on the Western Slope and have ever thought about an unguided Silverton season pass this is the time as once we hit a predetermined limit the price returns to $799. Be sure to purchase one starting 8/23 to get in on the incredibly low price as we expect to sell out rapidly.
New 50% increase in lift capacity to eliminate the occasional morning wait. People come to Silverton to ski lines, not wait in them so we are mounting up more chairs on the lift. By reducing the spacing between chairs we can eliminate that rare lift line that forms for the first chair of the day. You may likely even get a few extra runs in as a result.
December in Silverton can be unreal. No holiday crowds and big dumps make it one of the best times of the season. With extra December dates added there is more unguided skiing/boarding options than ever before. December usually has fantastic snow and has been one of the snowiest months at the mountain. In fact, the all time monthly snowfall record was set in December with over 200″ in a single month. One year there was so much snow on opening day we were unable to open as the County snow plows could not make it up the road. $49 Unguided ticket prices have never been raised and with the ultra low Silverton lodging prices why not make this a December to remember.
