The big snowstorm the past couple of days at Silverton Mountain, Colorado provided some lucky snowboard patrollers the opportunity to jump on the chairlift today. The first turns of the Colorado 2014/15 ski season were made on a fresh blanket of snow covering Colorado’s highest elevation ski area. Smiles were huge, and the fun factor off the charts after the winter storm at Silverton Mountain, Colorado loaded up the mountain with snow!
The official start of the ski season is slated for December 20, 2014 but if the snow keeps up at this pace that date could be pushed up. Silverton Mountain is the highest ski area in North America with a peak of 13,487’, providing snowboarding on all natural snow as early as August in previous years.
