A few words on the Snow at Silver Summit

Silver Summit has no detail snow data, but we estimate 100 inches snowfall, in view of the prairie location lower and leeward of the Canadian Rockies. Silver Summit gets by without snowmaking due to its very cold climate, mellow slopes and northeast exposure.

Accumulation and Preservation

Silver Summit can be open from early December to late April, but is likely most reliable from late December to mid-March.
