$50 Heli Skiing at Silverton Mountain

Silverton Mountain is the only location where you can heli ski/board this weekend for only $50.  As the only ski area in the US that offers heli skiing, Silverton Mountain is also the only place you will find it for $50.  If you haven’t ever experienced heli skiing, this weekend is your chance as Silverton  Mountain is hooking up the locals with prices from the 1980’s. Normally heli skiing can cost upwards of $1,000 per day as you have to purchase 6 runs at most heli skiing operations.

The $50 single heli drops will be offered in the Pyramid Zone at Silverton Mountain, which has not been skied all season and should have great snow. Silverton Mountain is 100% open with fantastic steep skiing to be had.

This is the final weekend of unguided skiing until April 5th when unguided skiing resumes. From January 19th through April 4th it returns to guided only skiing with approximately 80 skiers or less on the mountain each day.
