Silver Mountain sits on the Bitterroot Range in the heart of Idaho's mining country, in the panhandle of Northern Idaho. There are two separate mountains: Kellogg and Wardner Peaks. There is one of the longest eight-person gondolas in the world, churning up 2,200 vertical feet to the Mountain Haus.ActivitiesSnowboarding: Snowboarding allowed on all open terrain. The Drop Zone Terrain Park features huge kickers and table tops, rails, slide, and fun box. The Trench is a natural halfpipe that meets FIS regulations. Rentals available at base; lessons available at the Mountain House.LodgingLodging available in Kellogg, Wallace, and Coeur d'Alene. Winter RecreationFifteen miles of cross country trails, movie theatre and snowmobiling nearby. Night skiing on Friday and Saturday.
Silver mountain is an average mountain. Their terrain park really lacks, and i don't like the gondola. I prefer parking at the lodge, and having that kind of family friendly feeling. Their lodge setup is really dumb, and very confusing if you have never been there. If you want good snow go to Lookout Mountain which is about 45 minutes further east, and always has amazing snow conditions, and nice runs. If you're a snowboarder and want a good terrain park, go to Mt. Spokane.
This is not a resort, just a poorly run motel. I only wish I could give this place ZERO stars. I stay in 50 resorts and hotels every year and the staff at this place is probably the rudest and dumbest (in my opinion) that I have ever encountered. While I didn’t deal with their management – because they were likely too afraid to come out of their office to help me – I can only imagine it is just poor management that makes this place such a waste of money.
The skiing is fine. The “resort,” however, is terrible. From the rude attitude at check-in (mind you, the room we were checking in to was over $500 per night) to the lousy service in the main restaurant, the Silver Mountain “Resort” is not even as well-run as the crappy Red Lion in Pasco, WA (we had to stay there for a hockey tournament).
I won’t waste a lot of space with the issues, but there were plenty. From the misinformation they gave us when we reserved the room to the utter and complete lack of communication throughout. There is no need to stay here to access the skiing/snowboarding/tubing/water park, as the “resort” treats their paid guests just as poorly as those who walk up to by lift tickets and use the water park. You are better off staying in Coeur d’Alene and driving 30 minutes every morning to ski.
Also, don’t waste your money paying for the indoor water park; it is way overpriced for the pedestrian (at best) attractions.
Oh, our room was nice, it’s too bad (really) because we live just an hour away and would have spent thousands of dollars a year here. Now, we’ll find a new mountain to ski and a new “resort” to relax in.
John McCloud spent 90 minutes on the ride up last year! They 'forgot' about him! I was carving 24" of fresh at Lookout Pass just up the road. Silver Mountain is the worst ski resort in the world but they have 277 new condos and a new Chlorine Park. If Skiing magazine had a clue they would have called their article, 'The Worst Ski Area You've Never Skied.' Silver would make a great Haunted House with it's broken lifts and leaky lodge. This place will always be 'Jackass Pass' to the locals who know enough to go elsewhere.
I go to a ski area to ski. Silver Mountain has the best snow on day for day basis as anywhere in the West. Granted, the Kellog area is not much of a 'Resort' - If you want a Resort stay in Coeur d'Alene, it's just not that far away
I've stayed here several times with my family, and we all enjoy it. The rooms in the lodge are quite nice. The kids love the waterpark. The village is small. I've skiied Silver Mtn about 3 times and it has a good variety of terrain. Never too crowded.
We've never been treated poorly in kellog, wallace or at silver mtn. We've only skiied a few dozen places in n. america w/ canada. not like some who've skiied the whole world. But i'm sure he'll find things to complain about there too. Why do people come to here if things are so much better where they are from? We love Silver Mtn and we'll keep coming back to great runs, good food, good beer and friendly people and we're from washington till recently. I hope he had a safe trip back.We have seen worse. Thanks for your efforts S. M. Ken & Judy Lenderman
I do understand the negative reviews of Silver Mountain. Like most things on the Internet, maybe only the few people who had a bad experience are the ones writing the reviews? I have had a season pass at Silver for several seasons, and cannot say enough nice things about this resort. The lifties are friendly, the snow quality and quantity is good, the glades are excellent, there is some steep inbounds and decent sidecountry terrain, and on powder days you will laugh at how you are still skiing untracked lines in the afternoon. I highly recommend giving Silver Mountain a try and forming your own opinion.
