Silverpick Lodge

Silverpick Lodge & Condos At the Silverpick Lodge near Purgatory Ski Resort you’ll find your own little treasure. With a range of lodge rooms and condos, the Silverpick Lodge has the flexibility to provide quality lodging for everyone; sole travellers, couples, small groups, families and large groups. The accommodations can also cater to a range of budgets, and the Silverpick provides much better value for money than staying on-mountain at Purgatory Resort.

Silverpick knows how to cater to skiers and snowboarders and the evidence of this commences when you enter the reception area and see the chair lifts attached to the rafter, one with a snowboarder on it.

Where is the Silverpick Lodge Located? The Silverpick Lodge is located on highway 550, one mile south of the Purgatory Ski Resort Colorado. Complimentary on-demand shuttles to and from the ski resort are offered. The Silverpick Lodge is a 30 minute drive north of the town of Durango.

Lodge Rooms The actual lodge provides accommodation in 13 different rooms, each with a private bathroom. Some lodge rooms accommodate two persons. Various rooms accommodate up to four persons, one room can provide lodgings for 6, and a large room accommodates up to 8 people.

The décor varies somewhat between rooms but they are all nicely decorated and vary between classically simple and minimalist chic. Some rooms have gorgeous fireplaces and lovely sofas, and all have tasteful art adorning the walls and a TV. The adjoining bathrooms are also modern and beautifully appointed.

Large groups can rent out the whole lodge that sleeps up to 48 people.

Condos The Silverpick also has 1, 2 and 3 bedroom condominiums or townhomes. These apartments are reasonably modern, incredibly spacious and nicely decked out. Each of the condos is privately owned so the furnishings vary from place to place, but you’ll definitely get a homely touch and all the little extras such as games and DVDs. The kitchens are also fully stocked with all the cooking utensils required, not just the basics. Each unit has a laundry and daily maid service. And if your body is aching from skiing too many moguls, there is a communal outdoor hot tub in which to soak and socialise.

The condominiums are very well priced, especially when compared to those at Purgatory Ski Resort.

Lodge Facilities The lodge has fantastic amenities and facilities. These include:
  • A games room with billiards, foosball, and shuffle (like curling on a small scale)
  • Two outdoor hot tubs that have great views of the mountains
  • Spa area with steam room, sauna and massage room
  • Guest bathrobes to wear to the hot tubs or sauna
  • Coin operated laundry facilities
  • Conference facilities
  • Wifi
  • On demand shuttle to the ski area
  • 5,000 book library
  • Lounge area with a fireplace
Dining/Bars Dinner is available in the Sow’s Ear Restaurant in the lodge. This restaurant is absolutely outstanding with delightful décor, decadent wines, and meals that are mouth watering. Sow’s Ear is most famous for its steaks; the elk steaks are particularly exquisite. They also serve a variety of other scrummy food.

The bar at the Sow’s Ear has a selection of small meals from the restaurant menu as well as hamburgers. This is a fabulous place to perch for an après or evening drink in a beautiful setting. Before sunset, the views of the Needles mountain range are spectacular and look remarkably similar to The Remarkables range near Queenstown New Zealand.

Lodge guests can have breakfast in the communal kitchen which is stocked with coffee, juice, bagels, fruit, cereal, oatmeal and other goodies. Knock yourself out! Condo guests will have to self-cater or head up to the resort to have breakfast.

Why Stay at the Silverpick Lodge? Apart from the restaurant that will make your palate do backflips, the Silverpick Lodge has a variety of accommodation to suit most tastes and budgets. The lodge and condo are tastefully decorated and provide all the amenities you’d ever need or want for a ski holiday.

Silverpick is the Pick of Accommodation!

25/10/2010
Silverpick Lodge and Condos are located only 2 mins drive to the resort. So if you have a car anyway you may as well get the benefit of cheaper premium accommodation.

We stayed in the condos however also checked out all of the rooms in the lodge and both types of accommodation are fabulous.

One of the other benefits of staying here is the fabulous on-site restaurant. The food is to die for!
