Silver Mountain Ski Resort
The gondola base at Silver Mountain Resort
Silver Mountain Ski Resort is what Telluride was before the crowds arrived. Two 6,300-foot mountains, 3 bowls, lots of powder and tree skiing, all accessed by a world-class gondola ride to the base village. Family friendly prices, unmatched guest services, wide uncrowded slopes, bumps, chutes, trees, gladed meadows, well-groomed cruisers and rolling novice runs make this a ski resort to check out, again and again and again. There's also a good terrain park on the mountain with a pretty nice half-pipe. The resort also offers an excellent waterpark and golf course in the summer months.
The Silver Mountain base village is 40 minutes from Coeur d'Alene, 68 Interstate miles east of the Spokane, Washington, International Airport.
