While the word unique is often overused, it applies to the Silverton concept: One lift, one big mountain, no grooming, limited reservation-only skiing (for guided season), and a no-frills operation.

Terrain
Silverton's terrain is for advanced and expert skiers and riders only. The lone double rises from a base of 10,400 feet to 12,300 feet, but there's another 1000 feet of vertical above that, accessible with a modest effort. Skiers and riders in groups of eight with a guide explore the mountain together, which annually sees about 400" of snow.

The experience is more heli-skiing than resort skiing, but instead of dropping $800, you ride an old double chairlift all day for $99.
