Kendall Mountain

Kendall Mountain is a dedicated recreation area for skiers, snowboarders, cross-country skier and tele-markers.

A quiet little place nestled near Silverton, Kendall is a favorite spot for many and  planning the visit beforehand is a good idea. The summit of Kendall Mountain is over 9,500 feet in height, with a vertical drop of 240 feet in total. There are 35 acres of land which have been deemed ski-able, and one main ski lift serving the property. There are four main trails that make up the area.

25% of the trails are considered Black Diamond, 25% Blue, and 50% are Greens making a great little area to learn to telemark, practice skiing and snowboarding and cross-country around. Because Silverton Mountain has become a major destination for a large number on serious expert skiers and mountaineers, Kendall is great spots for parents and grandparents to relax and spend some easy skiing time with smaller children.

Kendall Mountain is a very nice place to enjoy a full day of skiing without having to trek to the other resorts around Colorado.

Kendall Mountain Reviews:

This is the coolest place to bring a family or to learn how to telemark ski. That’s what we did last year. My boys learned to ski, while I tried telemark skiing for the 1st time. It was affordable, but also so fun and un-crowded. We’ll definitely go back this year. We might go to Purgatory (Durango Mtn) for a day too. We paid $15 to ski at Kendall Mtn in Silverton. Our kids were free. (courtesy – SkiTown.com)

My Take: When I’ve skied Silverton, I’ve looked down the road at Kendall Mountain. It wasn’t of interest to me, but I could see it being a great resource, especially if you had the family in tow and Mom, the grandparents and the kids wanted to get some skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating done while you ripped the big lines.
