Description: Silver Mountain Ski Resort spans two mountains offering a wide variety of terrain and challenge including an awesome terrain park. This moderate sized resort skis big for its size and is an ideal mountain for beginner to expert skiers and boarders. They boast 73 named trails plus extensive glade skiing, hidden gems and off-piste adventures on some of the best terrain in the West.

Guide Description: 

This ski area totally rocks because there is a gondola! Yes, you feel like you are riding in style right in Idaho! The gondola takes you to the top of the hill (about a 15 min ride) and spits you right out at some great skiing. There is a ton of beginner terrain here and it is a quiet hill to spend the day at. If you are in a mood to change up the normal Schweitzer routine, give Silver a try. Another fun aspect of this hill is the water park! Check out the college deal for Fridays: lift ticket, water park pass, and food voucher. If checking out the skiing isn’t appealing enough, the water park is a must see!
