Silver Mountain, Idaho

A mining town with a colorful past reinvents itself as a ski resort with a bright future.

Decades before the gondola, the glades or Silver Mountain Resort, there was a donkey named Dolly. Back in 1885, a miner named Noah Kellogg lost track of Dolly in the hills of northern Idaho. When he found her, the donkey had kicked over a hunk of ore from what would become the biggest silver mine in the state. The town of Kellogg was born. Some years later, the townsfolk looked up and realized the region held an even bigger treasure: Two 6,000-foot-high mountains with 2,200-vertical-foot drops, steep shots and 25 feet of annual snowfall.
