Silverton CO

One lift up. Unlimited ways down.
Alright that’s a bit of hyperbole, but this is hands down the best experience in Colorado if you’re looking for intense runs in deep powder with no crowds. You’ll know if you fit into this crowd if you …

a) don’t mind hiking at 12,000′ to get to amazing runs

 b) scoff at people who brag about the bowls at

c) enjoy experiencing the purest form of something

The unguided lift ticket is fine, but if you want to make the most of your day, I would highly recommend getting a guide. They’ll save you aimless wandering time and get you right to the areas you want to go to.
Also, get there a little bit early because you have to sign a few waivers before you hit the backcountry!
