Silverton Mountain in Colorado are adding extra chairs to their chairlift for the 2010/11 season, reducing the gap between the chairs to maximise capacity.
They've got some good early bird pricing at the moment with season passes from $399 (£255), and a 10-Pass ($299) featuring 10 days of unguided skiing at Silverton Mountain, plus 6 free days of skiing (2 at A-Basin, 2 at Monarch, 2 at Loveland)
