In the Bitterroot Mountains of North Idaho, Silver Mountain Resort is home to epic dry snow and the longest Gondola in North America.

A destination resort in all four seasons, Silver Mountain has a variety of attractions and amenities, but it is the terrain and people that are the backbone of the culture here.

Born from a town based on mining and logging, the resort offers a much needed activity during the long winter months of north Idaho. We are proud to be a part of the community here.

Think you’re part of the different breed?

A ski patroller’s day starts long before the lifts open. After large snowstorms or changes in snowpack, ski patrollers ski-cut the hill and toss bombs to reduce the risk of an avalanche before the public is on the mountain.

Once morning chores have all been completed and the guests are happy and healthy, there’s nothing left to do but get in some good turns or kick back and relax. Down time in the patrol shack usually consists of tall tales, good laughs, and strong coffee.

When a call for assistance on the hil comes in from Dispatch, the patrollers are ready to respond in seconds to assist, treat and transport if needed.

We’re a different breed.
