Silverton Winter Activities

Silverton is probably not the place to bring your partner or family if they don’t ski because non-skiing activities are somewhat limited. Silverton is a long way from any day spas or sleigh rides! Silverton is rough around the edges and activities are only for the adventurous.

Silverton Ski Tours and Activities

Cat skiing with Silverton Powdercats is an option, which is based 6 miles out of Silverton atop Molas Pass. If you’d rather a snowcat did the hiking for you, Silverton Powdercats is the perfect alternative to roughing it at Silverton Mountain.

Another backcountry skiing option is heli skiing at Silverton Mountain or the DIY back country skiing out off Silverton is world class and easily accessed.

Nordic skiing is also available close to the town of Silverton.

Family Activities

Kendall Mountain is a little family ski hill located in the town of Silverton. It has 240 feet of vertical, 4 runs, and a little bit of tree skiing serviced by a double chairlift. Lift tickets are super cheap so it’s the ideal place for the family to learn to ski.
