ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increasing popularity of ski resorts with steeper mountains that have rougher edges among U.S. skiers as of October 2005. The Silverton Mountain ski area is owned by Jennifer and Aaron Brill. Its avalanche patrol detonates more ordnance than that of any other Colorado mountain. And it offers skiers more raw, steep terrain than can be had at such storied resorts as Aspen, Vail, Park City or Squaw Valley.
