“Tiny and nestled between two rugged San Juan Mountain passes, Red Mountain and Molas, Silverton has been a beloved destination since its mining days, especially those pursuing new heights outdoors, from OHV trails, backcountry camping and hiking, fishing and much more.”


“The snow-covered San Juan Mountains around Silverton provide an enchanting setting for various outdoor winter activities including alpine, extreme, snow-cat and cross-country skiing; snowshoeing, ice fishing, natural ice climbing, ice skating, sledding and snowmobiling. The Silverton Snowmobile Club grooms many miles of multi-use trails with easy access from town on US Highway 550, including at Molas Lake. Guided tours are available for snowmobiling, extreme and snow-cat skiing. If you prefer off the track adventure, treat yourself to a ski lodge getaway and make your own trails. Come to Silverton and enjoy some of the best snow in the country!”
