Smack-dab in the center of an ancient volcanic caldera, Silverton is a true mountain town. Home to an extreme ski resort, famous mountaineers, miners and rich history, it is a fantastic place to visit and speaks for itself when it comes to remote and rugged towns. Many mountain ranges don’t have a year-round maintained road passing through them. The San Juan Range from Durango, through Silverton, to Ouray has three: Coal Bank, Molas, and the infamous Red Mountain. Highway 550 brings powder-hounds through some of Colorado’s most rugged and diverse ski terrain. Silverton Mountain ski resort, at the heart of the San Juans, boasts an annual snowfall of 400 inches.
The mountains accessed from Silverton possess some of the most extreme ski descents in North America, and some of the deepest snow in Colorado. The locations showcased in this atlas offer the entire spectrum of terrain and difficulty. Provided you already have a small amount of experience as a backcountry skier, there is something in this atlas for everyone.
