    Silverton Mountain Statement Re: Lawsuit

    Silverton Mountain canít comment on the case (or reply to questions), but we wanted to clarify a few facts since there is much misinformation going around.

    -Silverton Mountainís thoughts and sympathies are with Ms. Goehrig.
    -Ms. Goehrig was a foot passenger who received a complimentary lift ticket from Silverton Mountain as she had a relative that worked at Silverton Mountain.
    -The top lift attendant was at his station monitoring the lift at his top lift shack, and slowed the lift down (to a speed slower than required by code for foot passengers).
    -The chairlift is in compliance with Colorado law and is inspected at least twice per year by inspectors for the State of Colorado.

    I went there on itís 2nd year operation and was not happy about powder farming. Call it as such and donít call it ďguided serviceĒ. Iím surprised more law suits are not filed for that false advertisement.

    I'd say 99.9% of guided skiing services would be guilty of this. Heli, Cat, or Silverton. It is how things are done industry wide. You don't like it? Go guide yourself.

    I'd take a few "guided powder farmed" turns right now vs the WROD!

    Yeah, my guess is that your lawyers are not being wise allowing you to comment on this on social media. It's not as though you're losing customers here, anyway.

    ^ gonna take a wild guess that their statement of defense - or what ever they are called down there- says pretty much the same thing and is a public document (or will be)

    Pretty sure those statements were run by their lawyers.

    Much love to SIlverton. Some of the best ski days of my life there since the second year they opened. I wrecked my knee there (1000% my fault). Someday soon I'll get over the PTSD from the incident and get back down there. Also the Brills and the guides have always been super cool to this midwest gaper.

    You're so important they should probably just let you go wherever you want to, never mind avalanche risk mitigation or trying to save some snow for the Sunday crowd when the weekend is looking dry. Show up few days after a storm and you'll appreciate the efforts of the guides and consideration of previous skiers. these guys do have a business to run and no product (in their case powder ) = no paying customers. Take a lap hoser.

    Hope Silverton Mtn can stay in the game. I am sure they have insurance for this sort of thing as most outfitters do.

    I think the term is "first world problems". How hard for you: "I got to ride at Silverton Mt in the beautiful San Juan mountains, but the meany guides had guidelines for preserving powder". Note to Tmokes: don't book a heli trip. And maybe try to experience some gratitude. Skiiing is for fun, not for whining.

    You guys thinks Silverton is the shit and eat it if they serve it up.

    I had a great time with Aaron as our guide for 2 days, but who doesnít want to look at the slopes and come up with your own line? Why the fuck do you think they added unguided days? Customer demand maybe???

    I just think they should advertise as much: pow turns guaranteed due to pow farming.

    I did some mediocre heli trip in NZ and they still gave us some freedom to pick our line. Not 30-40 feet wide ribbon for 5-6 people...

    I also hired guide service when I was in Japan. That was great with guide asking us what we wanted and gave us as much freedom as possible.

    If this isnít their first legal case brought against them, I would guess itís for false advertisement. Thatís all.

    The term you are looking for is turn farming, powder or snow farming involves using fencing to accumulate snow/pow where you want it. Then said snow is usually groomed for some type of activity.
