Kickoff the season in San Juan Mountain fashion

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

 

Regional ski resorts got the bullwheels rolling last week and got skiers and riders lapping up groomers.This weekend take a break from the groomed and try advanced, ungroomed terrain at our neighboring Silverton Mountain ski area. Opening day is Saturday and is followed by Silverton Mountain and Venture Snowboard‘s famous kickoff party at the Grand Imperial in Silverton. They’re hosting live music, door prizes and a raffle for Venture’s limited edition Ska Brewing Euphoria board.

Silverton Mountain plans to open 30 of its advanced runs with a 30-40 inch base already in place. Word is the north shots are skiing really well.

San Juan Mountains-style ski conditioning

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

It’s time to get those legs in shape for winter, and plan your San Juan Mountains ski destinations for the winter. Want to make some free turns at Silverton Mountain this year? Well, you’re going to have to stomp for it. Silverton Mountain’s annual bootpacking kickoff begins this weekend and is offered the weekend of Dec. 10 and 11. Duct tape your pants to your boots (keeps the snow out) and join Silverton’s ski patrol on the ski area to pack out the snow. Each day you work, you’ll receive a ticket for one day of unguided skiing.

With your body getting into ski mode, come trek up to our huts and make some turns on this side of the hill.
