I'm done with this thread.
Thanks for the entertainment, and offering no arguements against mine except name calling.
I'm headed up to Silverton this weekend to help put in the boot pack. I do think its a cool resort, just not compared to BC resorts, and not with a guide, unless, I said in my original post, the conditions are perfect.
I would think you'd be stoked to find out about a little known resort in the Canadian Rockies where you can stay the night in a hotel and buy a ticket for 100 USD a night. 35 less than a day of guided skiing at Silverton. I'll be heading up there next season when I can return to Canada legally. And thanks to people like you, there won't be a line for the lift. We'll keep it between the trust funders, because it's totally out of reach unless you're loaded, and a flaming poser.
