Idaho Vacation Guide
Email Us to Request a Visitor's Guide
Welcome to Silver Mountain Resort. We are thrilled you're planning an Idaho vacation. The first thing you should know prior to your visit is that Silver is distinguished from most other vacation resorts in Idaho because you ride the gondola from the base village up to the slopes. Then, at the end of your day you cruise back down to the village on the gondola. No mountain roads or hairpin turns to deal with in winter driving conditions. Rather, let us do the driving so you can enjoy a latte and the scenic 3-mile gondola ride to the top.
Before You Arrive
A few basic things will make your vacation on the mountain enjoyable. Weather conditions in Idaho can change rapidly, please ensure that you and your family are equipped for your first time on the mountain. There are a lot of different ways to dress for winter sports. Some will keep you warmer than others.
