Silverthorne is the first exit west of the Eisenhower Tunnel along I-70, at the intersection of Highway 9 and Highway 6, and is often thought of first as the town with the outlets. While the outlets certainly play a key in Silverthorne’s economy, there is much more to the area that is set in the mountain valley below Buffalo Mountain and Red Peak and Ptarmigan Mountain and Williams Fork Range, at 8,730 feet above sea level.
The Town offers excellent fishing in the Blue River, a number of parks, and a Recreation Center that is 62,000 square feet and houses four pools, workout rooms, gymnasium and track.
Due to the continued growth and changes since incorporation, the Town updates their Community Profile annually. It contains information on demographics, economic activity, town government, employment, recreation, and parks, and community facilities.
