Silver Mountain Resort
This resort is home to two mountains featuring more than 70 trails and over 1,600 acres of ski terrain plus 300+ inches of snow each year.
Guaranteed Good Snow
With an average of 305 inches per year, the snow is nowhere near as wet and stodgy as the resorts in Washington and Oregon. The mountain is also much sunnier than many Washington resorts and is less subject to mid-season thaws. AND Out of all the resorts we research and write about, this is possibly the greatest thing we’ve found—the resort offers a guarantee you’ll be pleased with the snow conditions on either of its two mountains! If you’re not, then you only need to take your lift ticket back to the gondola base within an hour-and-a-half, and you’ll get a free pass for another day of skiing. Lift tickets range from around $50 for a full a full day adult ticket to around $35 for a kids and juniors. Wow—amazing is that?!
