Come to the Mountains Prepared this 4th of July

I just took a look at the 10 day forecast and we're expecting some really nice weather. Daily highs will be in the mid 60's and the night time lows are predicted to fall between 35 and 45 degrees. For many of you suffering 100 degree + heat this must sound like a dream come true. It's too early...

Where to find an S.V.F.D. Donation Boot

One of the most well known symbols of the Silverton 4th of July are the S.V.F.D. Donation Boots seen all over town. Our supporting businesses present an S.V.F.D. Fireman's Boot on their counter as a way for customers to easily add a few bucks to the cause. On the 4th of July our Volunteer Fire Department collects these Boots and...

Scheduled Hwy 550 Roadwork for Summer 2017

This summer CDOT will be doing road work about 2 miles south of Silverton to reinforce the crib wall under the road. This will mean that traffic will be confined to one lane with a flagger on each end controlling flows. Expect this to add an additional twenty minutes to the 70 minute drive from Silverton to Durango. On the positive...

The Iron Horse Bicycle Race is This Weekend

video
  What an amazing display of athleticism. The premise of this race is to beat the train from Durango to Silverton and that almost seems trivial by today's standard as athletes from around the world travel to the San Juan Mountains and the winner is typically coming in around 2 hours 30 minutes. At just under 50 miles in distance, this...

Where to go when you gotta go!

Many local restaurants and businesses have a 'Customers Only' policy for their restrooms and this can be quite frustrating if you  gotta go.  The good news is that there's probably one right around the corner.  Once you know where they are you'll much prefer a newly restored victorian era water closet to a regular old bathroom anyway.  And some...
