Silverton to offer overnight heli-skiing trips this season

Silverton heli terrain

New this season, in addition to its regular helicopter operations, Silverton will now offer overnight heli-touring trips for $429 per person per day.

As the only Colorado resort that offers heli-skiing, Silverton is taking it to the next level with overnight trips. They include a heli drop onto a peak with a guide (within the permit boundary), followed by a full day of skiing or snowboarding, and then a tent (with cooking equipment) awaiting guests in the field. After another full day of skiing or snowboarding the next day, an additional heli drop places guests on a peak to which they can ski or snowboard down to the base.

Sleeping bags, food, and beverages are brought by guests and carried along with them in the helicopter to the zone.

More details will be posted online at silvertonmountain.com.
