Silverthorne is located about an hour from Denver and is within minutes of seven world-class ski resorts - Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Vail, Beaver Creek, Loveland and Arapahoe Basin. Called "the Gateway to Summit County," Silverthorne was incorporated in the 1960s and with its' close proximity to both winter and summer attractions, it makes an ideal home base from which to explore the area. The population of the community is around 3,100, and it's known as the "hub" for many of the region's activities. A new 62,000 square foot recreation center in Silverthorne offers lots of indoor activities, like swimming and hot tubs, and the town is well known for its' Factory Stores, with over 70 brand name shops known for their exceptional value and quality. You'll also find an abundance of accommodations and restaurants in Silverthorne and easy access to Interstate 70. The nearby White River National Forest and Ptarmigan & Eagles Nest Wilderness Areas offer miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, and you can snowmobile or go cross country skiing over the mountain passes in the wintertime. Fishing is superb in the "Gold Medal" Blue River, and boating and canoeing are available in Dillon Reservoir. Other recreational activities in Silverthorne include golf, whitewater rafting, fall color tours and driving over the Continental Divide to explore area "ghost towns."

Silverthorne Weather & Climate

Northwestern Colorado is mostly mountainous, with some desert lands. Generally, the area has a highland mountain climate. Having the highest average elevation in the United States, combined with complex topography, results in dramatic climate changes from place to place. A general rule of thumb is the higher the elevation, the lower the temperature with an increase in precipitation. Northwest Colorado has a distinct four-season climate with cold, snowy winters and mild summers. In years when snow cover is heavy at high elevations, or when there is a sudden warming in the spring at high elevations, flooding may be a problem. Thunderstorms are possible in spring and summer. Hail is also common in the northwest part of the state. Autumn means crisp, dry days with lots of sunshine and cool nights.
