    By "off season" do you mean unguided season?

    Here's this: http://silvertonmountain.com/shop/gu...faqs/#unguided .

    So 475 tickets is max per day. I don't know if it's ever been hit.

    For guided season, try to make a reservation and get wait listed, so they can try to get resources.

    Hold on and someone with authority might answer.

    Bump for unguided season. Iíll be there March 21-24. Red Mtn pass is closed indefinitely https://www.tetongravity.com/video/n...-of-avalanches

    Apparently Colorado gets a few avalanches, who knew? Super psyched to drive through Durango to get there.

    I'll be there Thursday March 28, but probably doing a guided day as it'll be my first visit. Telluride the rest of the weekend.

    With the system coming through this week it seems unlikely the pass will be clear by then either huh? Montrose to Silverton by way of Durango sounds absolutely brutal.

    Thinking about heading to Silverton March 20th-24th, but lodging seems very expensive. Is it possible to tent camp on the side of the road to the ski area?

    I have no idea, but yea lodging is a bitch. We reserved an Airbnb 3 months ago and they have increased the rate twice on us (such bullshit, whoops we charged you the wrong rate 2 weeks after booking and now they hit us with an additional $150 cleaning fee, or you can cancel but oh look thereís nothing available in town).

    Tent camp in an avalanche prone area? Sounds like a great idea.

    No that is not possible. Road and bridge ain't into it. You could backcountry camp of course. As Simple said, the whole road is pretty exposed to avalanche hazard. There are better options around including up towards Animas Forks. You try the hostel https://www.blairstreethostel.com/ ?

    Changing rates and adding fines after booking seems sketchy af. When I hosted, i couldn't imagine getting Airbnb to approve that at all. Might be worth a phone call to HQ

    I have been hosting for 4 years. You can not change rates or add charges period. It is not legal per Airbnb terms.

    Agreed. But since he doesn't have many alternatives maybe best to hold off until after trip or cautiously broach w Airbnb? Airbnb will probably ding them and maybe ban, but he doesn't want to get caught in the cross fire

    The article didn't seem to mention Red mtn pass closed till further notice if you were going that way. Can still go from the south. No idea about the lifts though.

    Silverton Mountain 18-19 - Expanded Unguided and Killer Heli Deal

    My understanding is county road 10 is closed and Silvy is charging an extra $110 to fly people in but they are open. Iím guessing they will get that road open sooner than later.

    I got an email from Silverton that they are going to be open tomorrow. No mention of flying anyone in.

    Well, I got called into work next week and may have jury duty beginning April 1. Hopefully I can get out there before they close.

    Dirtbagging is gonna be tough compared to a lot of recent seasons. It's always been low avy/lean years the times I have gone and all roads open. Back in 2015, you could drive to the top of Ophir Pass on Masters weekend.
    This season, it's looking like in town only until some roads open.

    I meant itís not possible to just change rates on a current booking. The mechanics of the website does not let you do that. So itís not a matter of letting them sort it out, Itís just not possible to demand more money once itís booked. There is no way to collect.

    Ya, Id like to know more. It's is possible make booking alterations by request. I'm curious how it transpired. Regardless, it's something Airbnb would punish the host for if it's as blackmailey as it sounds

    My buddy has the reservation in his name and he said it came through Airbnb as a request, with the option to accept or cancel the trip.

    Today at passholders day:

    All of the lower mountain/everything off the lift was open.

    West side all open over to Tiger Claw & Main.

    East face nothing yet open higher than Waterfall. Heard they were working diligently to get Rope ready.

    North facing and high elevation stuff skied really well. Everything else was usual SIlverton spring conditions.

    A shit ton of snow everywhere.
