Silverthorne, often described as the ‘gateway to Summit County’
gives access to the ski area and ski towns right off I-70. This town can provide a less expensive alternative to staying at the base of the mountain. Accommodations and vacation rentals can be more affordable around Silverthorne and is still just a short drive to all of Summit County's ski areas. This is also a great place to rent skis; it's often cheaper to go with a multi-day rental from a Silverthorne ski shop than rent on the mountain. The surrounding Ptarmigan and Eagles Nest Wilderness areas are excellent for outdoor recreation of all kinds.
Once the snow melts, Silverthorne’s Blue River becomes a big draw.
Anglers have a field day here. The Blue River sports four different types of fat and feisty trout. Fly-fishing is the preferred method, but lure fishing is also effective along the banks. If fishing or skiing doesn’t suit your fancy, then perhaps Silverthorne’s prime shopping will excite you. Today, one the town's biggest draws is the Outlets at Silverthorne, featuring a multiplex of over 70 name-brand stores and deep discounts.
