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

    June 28, 2018…. In what must be the best deal ever in Skiing, Silverton Mountain is now offering $39 Heli Skiing, an exclusive Private Mountain Day, and 42 FREE DAYS with its Season Passes!

    Silverton Mountain is rolling out a big expansion to its $149 Unguided Season Passholders for 2018/19.

    The upcoming spring unguided season at Silverton Mountain will now begin at its earliest time ever on March 21, 2019 and run Thursday-Sunday through April 14, 2019.

    That is a 166% increase in available ski days to the unguided season and yet the early bird Spring Unguided Pass price remains unchanged at only $149.

    The $149 Spring Unguided Season Pass (early bird purchase price) includes the spring unguided season at Silverton Mountain, plus an exclusive private mountain day on March 20th, a $39 heli drop, 42 Free Days at partner resorts across the US, $89 guided Skiing*, and discounts on premium draft beers throughout the season. Partner resorts include some of the best “core” ski areas, as the corporate ski industry landscape continues to homogenize by the day.

    On Wednesday, March 20th, season passholders will have exclusive private access to the mountain for a day of Skiing before opening the unguided season to the public beginning on March 21st.

    Silverton Mountain will be open Thurs-Sun (including Monday, Presidents Day) during the entire guided and unguided season. Silverton Mountain is slated to open with heli skiing available November 24, 2018. Guided season will begin December 27, 2018 and Unguided season starts March 21, 2019.
    Only a very limited number of early bird $149 Unguided Season Passes will be sold for the 2018-19 season. Until August 1s t (or when the very limited supplies run out), you can purchase your Unguided Pass for only $149 (regular price $499). * $89 guided skiing discounts are on standby basis.

    OK so there was a pinchfest last year about the reduced unguided season. Here's something different. Will there be accolades?

    So the $39 Heli drops come with the unguided pass? Almost seems like I can afford to plan a heli ski trip.

    I'm reading that as 1 cheap heli drop total

    That's a heli drop, not drops. I assume you get one at $39, but others at full pop??? Still a good deal.

    edit: North beat me to it.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    I read it as 1 $39 heli drop:

    More data:
    The 2018/19 Spring Unguided Pass
    $149 Early Bird Pricing
    You read that right! The Spring Unguided Pass at Silverton Mountain is so cheap it’s like we’re giving skiing away! Check out this awesome deal:
    Access to the mountain for the following 17 scheduled Unguided dates. This is a 166% increase in schedule length and the earliest spring unguided dates ever. Dates include:
    Wednesday, March 20 (Passholder-Only Private Mountain)
    March 21-24
    March 28-31
    April 4-7
    April 11-14
    $89 Standby Guided Skiing/Snowboarding during Guided Season.
    A one-time $39 heli drop to Grassy Bowl or Butter Bowl with Heli season extended into unguided season!
    $2 Premium draft beers all season
    PLUS 42 FREE days at the following partner resorts:
    3 days at Monarch Mountain, Colorado
    3 days at Eaglecrest, Alaska
    3 days at Mission Ridge, Washington
    3 days at Sundance Mountain Resort, Utah
    3 days at Red Lodge Mountain, Montana
    3 days at Sunlight Mountain Resort, Colorado
    3 days at Powderhorn, Colorado
    3 days at Mount Bohemia, Michigan
    3 days at Snow King, Wyoming
    3 days at Homewood, California and $100 off cat skiing included
    3 days at Smugglers’ Notch Resort, Vermont
    3 days at Brundage Mountain, Idaho
    3 days at Mad River Glen, Vermont
    3 days at Mt. Baldy, California

    Again, the issue here is that SM is offering 17 unguided days in addition to 42 days at other resorts for $149. Hopefully this will put a smile on some faces.

    someday buster, some day we will have that talk.
    i was suggesting that since BBI is on Thursday-Saturday on President Day weekend, you could ski Alpental a couple days before having to be at Silverton by Monday

    I bitched about Silverton last year and am glad to hear they are expanding the unguided season.
    I would still love for them to bring back early season unguided but this is a great start.

    I think three days at either resort is worth it. A three day MRG ticket last season was $207 (walk-up rate).

    Done as well. Glad they opened the unguided up earlier. I am a season pass holder again!

    Much prefer Silverton unguided, hope to make it out but the 3 days at MRG makes the pass alone. Definitely would plunk down $39 for a chopper ride. Anyone know how that works in unguided? Do you have a guide with you? Do they just drop you for the meadow skipping?


    Monarch plus Silverton for a week of skiing is a pretty good ticket deal too.

    98% chance you can ride Fruita in late March.

    The white zone is for loading and unloading. If you need to load or unload go to the white zone. You'll love it!

    This deal was too good to pass up. I can break even with three days at Homewood. I hope to get in more days at other resorts on this pass as well as get a chance to experience Silverton for the first time.

    The 3 days at Bohemia were the kicker for me.
