As of Saturday, SilverStar will have all lifts in operation for the winter season


SilverStar Mountain Resort is excited to announce that Saturday morning the Powder Gulch Express lift, on the mountain’s backside, will open for the winter season.

With the opening of Powder Gulch, all mountain lifts will officially be open.

SilverStar has also opened Brewer’s Pond for skating and Paradise Camp restaurant on the backside.

“We are thrilled to have all of our lifts now running,” said Chantelle Deacon, media relations manager, SilverStar. “Conditions are looking great and it looks like more snow is in the forecast.”

With the opening of the Powder Gulch lift, it’s important to remember that there is still closed terrain on the backside. The mountain asks that for safety reasons guests respect closures until there is enough snow to open more terrain.

“At this time, only terrain from Caliper over to the Gypsy side will be open,” Deacon said. “We will keep the Eldorado/Sunny Ridge side closed until we receive more snow.”
