Bring Silverthorne Home
Published May 12, 2020
We miss you! While Silverthorne is currently closed to visitors, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy our fresh mountain air and Silverthorne state-of-mind from home. Until we welcome you back, you can experience Silverthorne from afar in the following ways:
Enjoy a Taste of Silverthorne from Home
- Order tea or coffee from Red Buffalo Café to enjoy your favorite cup of joe in the comfort of your own home.
- Celebrate happy hour on your deck, patio or couch with Angry James Brewery, which is offering several of its beers at locations throughout Summit County and at Mondo Vino in Denver’s Highlands neighborhood.
- Put your own spin on a local’s favorite like carne asada tacos and apple cider margaritas by whipping up one of food blogger and best-selling cookbook author Tieghan Gerard’s recipes. Find these recipes and more in Tieghan’s Half Baked Harvest or Super Simple cookbooks. Then curl up on the couch and immerse yourself in Colorado’s rustic splendor by touring her barn via Colorado Homes & Lifestyles.

Get Inspired, Olympics Style
Sad that the 2020 Summer Olympics have been postponed? Take a trip down memory lane with some of our favorite Olympic moments featuring Silverthorne’s own!
- Remember when Silverthorne resident Red Gerard took home the first Olympic gold medal for the U.S. at the 2018 Winter Olympics? The Gerard family recently reflected on the brotherly love that cultivated Red’s gold-medal talent. What about the time when the Town embraced a new name – Goldthorne – and celebrated its six local Olympians and Paralympians?
- If you find yourself in need of a jolt of inspiration, check out Amy Purdy’s journey. The local Paralympic snowboarder, Dancing with the Stars runner-up and overall “hero” (according to Oprah herself!) will motivate anyone to get off the couch and follow their dreams.
