General Description

Silver Creek Ski Area
Copyright: - Silver Creek Golf and Ski Ranch
Silver Creek Ski Area
This 5,500 acre resort sits tucked gently into the mountains near the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. SolVista is home to 33 family-friendly ski trails on two interconnected mountains with more than 40 kilometers of groomed nordic trails.

SolVista ski area is comprised of two separate yet inter-connected mountains. East Mountain's terrain is primarily beginner and intermediate, while West Mountain's terrain is primarily intermediate and advanced with limited beginner access. A separate learn-to-ski park features a surface lift for beginners.

The Base Lodge is a central, three-story base facility housing lift ticket sales, ski school desk, information desk, rentals, retail shop, lost and found, lockers, cafeteria, restaurant, lounge, and selected administrative offices. First-aid facilities are in the Ski Patrol building just east of the Base Lodge.

SolVista is located two miles south of Granby and 15 miles north of Winter Park. Both towns are known for a multitude of outdoor activities. Granby is a full-service mountain community with a strong ranching heritage. Services include a variety of restaurants and bars, banks, convenience stores, medical services, automotive services, grocery store, florists, and shopping. The Winter Park/Fraser area offers many of the same conveniences, with added restaurants and bars, shopping and a movie theatre.
