Mind Blown: Silverton, CO

Watch as George Rodney and Ty Peterson shred some of Colorado’s rowdiest terrain in the 2017 film, “Line of Descent”.


Nestled in southwestern Colorado, Silverton was originally a mecca for mining silver. Nowadays, the small town sees some of the state’s greatest snowfall and hosts some of its wildest terrain. It’s a tiny town, rough around the edges, with colorful characters and a mountain defined by its single chairlift and expert-only skiing and riding. With technically the entire mountain considered out-of-bounds, professional skiers George Rodney and Ty Peterson discover some of the deepest stashes in "Line of Descent".
