Silverton Mountain: The Greenest Little Ski Area

The Ski Area Citizens' Coalition, an organization that ranks ski resorts' environmental practices, calls Colorado's Silverton Mountain a "little ski area that rocks." The mountain has one lift—which services over 1,800 acres of expert-only terrain and accesses over 3,000 feet of vertical drop—no grooming, no snowmaking, no cut trails, and no beginner runs. We spoke to co-owner Aaron Brill while riding the chairlift about Silverton's reuse and recycle motto.
