We are sad to announce that we will not be operating in 2018 due to extreme lack of snow in the San Juan Mountains. Please keep us in mind for next season, and pray for snow!

Any existing reservations will be refunded in full. Please call us with any questions regarding existing reservations at 970-385-7288.

Still waiting…

After a stellar season last year, winter seems to be taking a siesta so far this year in the San Juan Mountains. While we have received a couple decent storms so far in 2018, an abnormally dry November / December have kept conditions just barely out of what we deem as worthwhile powder skiing. Rather than attempt to open just for the sake of opening, we’re waiting until we feel conditions are both safe and enjoyable. We’re nearly there, so keep your fingers crossed for more snow! For any questions about existing reservations, please email us or give us a call at 970-385-7288.

Getting dumped on in Silverton

  • date
  • December 18, 2016


We just had our first BIG storm of the season in Silverton! After a late ‘indian summer’, we’ve had a cold and active cycle the past 4 weeks. This most recent storm was enough to close Red Mountain Pass for two days!

This most recent storm dropped almost 2 feet of new snow on our cat skiing terrain! And with 2 more storms on the horizon, the conditions are looking to be prime for our estimated December 29th opening day!

Start your New Year’s off with some face shots! Give us a call at 970-385-7288 or book online at

We are now open for 2016!

Today is our first official trip of the season at Silverton Powdercats for the 2015 / 2016 Cat Skiing Season in Silverton & Durango, Colorado! We’ve gotten dumped on this past week with over 60″ of new snow. This pic was taken near our base area. You might need to hold it.

These are some of the best early season conditions in the past 10 years, with cold temps and little wind. Its deep and light!

We’ve got trips going out the next few days, so don’t wait to book your trip! You can now book online at or give us a call at 970-385-7288
