Aaron-Thank you so much for your comments. One thing I don’t think I’d ever say is that you or your staff don’t have a ton of paosisn for skiing and your ski area. I really do love the idea of Silverton mountain, and it’s great to see what it’s done for the town as well. Your guides were super friendly and helpful on the unguided day we skied this spring. They pointed us to the 3 stooges area, saying that was the best snow and terrain open at the time (and it was the best run we had that day) We also noticed that a skinny little run in the trees (string, maybe?) didn’t have tracks in it and we were able to find it and put a set of tracks in it. It was pretty fun all in all, but our expectations were set pretty high.Speaking of expectations, that’s really the only point that the blog entry was about. If all you see are things like the NGA quote at the end of the entry, or the got balls bumper stickers, you’ll go to Silverton expecting some serious stuff. For someone in a cubicle, they may ski Silverton and be completely relieved to find that it’s within their abilities. For someone like me who has been lucky enough to ski places like Chamonix and Las Lenas and backcountry like the 14ers, Silverton might go the other way and not be quite as challenging as hoped for. If I arrived at Silverton not expecting death-defying steeps but just some semi-steep powder runs, I would probably think the place was the greatest place on earth.Silverton is the steepest overall, I can see that. Your permitted area is indeed higher, it’s the lifts that are higher elsewhere. Not that important anyway I hope to find the time to visit next season and make some turns with you, for sure. Hopefully it’s an epic year and the only thing to complain about will be choking on faceshots.
