Visitor Reviews of Silverton Mountain
Jamie from United States writes:
Silverton Mt. ski area isn't new anymore. It has good skiing but with limits. Most of the season you have to have a guide, and most guides they offer are not really that experienced, as most are from places with little or no real skiing. When you are guided you have to ski down then stop and wait for the rest of your group. If you go make sure your group is good. They also make you spoon your turns. I've been a number of times and the skiing was good but give me Highlands on a good day without the restrictions any time.
