Silverton - Southwest Colorado

Step back in history and stay awhile in Silverton. For years, this area has produced gold, silver and other metals. Today, Old Town Square invites you to browse shops filled with Old West charm and rare antiques. Visit the Grand Imperial Hotel, built in 1882 - a prefect example of Victorian architecture. The atmosphere may have provided the setting for several Western movies, not only to take advantage of the historic look, but to capture the splendorous mountain magic as well. Filled with back country trails, the area is perfect for a 4-wheel drive vehicle. For a truly memorable vacation, ride the Durango-Narrow Gauge Railroad starting in Durango, then spend some time in Silverton reliving history.

With a base elevation at 10,400' and a peak elevation at 12,300', Silverton is some of Colorado's best extreme skiing. For a less intense ski, visit Kendall Mountain Recreation Area known as "The Cheapest Ski area in the West." During the summer, take a ride on the "highest summer scenic chair life in North America." For those who love cheap thrills, take a trip down the "Hard Core" biking trail.
