Once a construction camp for workers at the Dillon Dam, Silverthorne has undergone a complete transformation in the past 40 years and is now an outdoor adventure center in its own right.
Check out the outdoor ice rink for skating and hockey or the Nordic center for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ski skating. In warmer months, hikers will love the miles of trails at Eagles Net Wilderness. Or grab your clubs and head to the Raven golf course or your skate board and hit the skate boarding park.
For anglers in search of a great catch, a visit to the Blue River is a must. Winding through the length of town, the waters are designated “Gold Medal” by the Colorado Wildlife Commission, with fantastic large trout fishing.
The Lake Dillon Theatre Company is a destination in its own right with year-round theatrical and musical performance in an intimate setting. Workshops, panel discussions and educational series are available for adults and youth.
Shoppers will scoop up deals galore at more than 30 shops that make up the Outlets at Silverthorne. From Calvin Klein, Coach and Ralph Lauren to Under Armor, Samsonite, Le Creuset and Pearl Izumi, set aside some time to treat yourself and leave space in your suitcase to bring home your fabulous finds!
