Ski Experience  - Silver Mountain

Silver Mountain Resort in Idaho, features prime mountains, an indoor water park, and other activities like shopping and nightlife that make it the perfect place for a vacation.

Ski Levels

Almost 1,600 skiable areas means there are slopes suitable for every skill level including 20 percent for beginners, 40 percent for intermediate skiers, 30 percent for the more advanced, and 10 percent for the expert skier. Skiers and Snowboards have access to two mountains—Wardner Peak and Kellogg Peak. The gondola carries skiers over homes in Wardner and features 45 towers and over three miles, making it the longest gondola system in the world. Current efforts are underway to expand the resort, adding much more skiing terrain to the already 1,600 feet. Another 4,000 of vertical space will be added as well.

In addition to some of the best skiing, the Idaho State Park system has set aside land for nordic skiers and snowshoe lovers to enjoy. If you have never been snowshoeing, we suggest you give it a try, it is a lot more fun than it sounds. And cross-country skiing is one of the best all around workouts you can have.
