Silver Mountain Resort is a ski resort in the western United States, located in the Silver Valley region in the Idaho Panhandle, just south of Kellogg and Interstate 90 in Shoshone County. Originally opened as "Jackass Ski Bowl" in January 1968 on Wardner Peak, it was renamed "Silverhorn" in 1973 following an ownership change. With planned improvements, most notably the gondola from the city of Kellogg and expansion on Kellogg Peak, the name was changed to "Silver Mountain" in the summer of 1989.HistoryJackass Ski BowlJackass Ski Bowl, near Wardner, was constructed in the summer of 1967 on lands leased from the Bunker Hill Mining Company. It was named for Noah Kellogg's borrowed ore-discovering donkey (Jenny) of 1885. The ski area began operations in January 1968 and the first seasons were promising, with plans for lift expansion and a 1971 season that extended to mid-May. But the next two years of poor skiing weather caused the operation to fall into financial difficulty. Following its sixth season, its assets were liquidated in a foreclosure sale by the SBA in August 1973 in Wallace, and were purchased by the Bunker Hill Co. for $100,100.Plan to see Silver Mountain Resort and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kellogg trip itinerary tool .

It’s a pretty nice resort. They have indoor water park, shopping, restaurants, cable cart that take you all the way up to the top of the lodge at 6,000+ ft elevation. Once you get to the top, the views are so beautiful. It’s worth it to go check this place out if you have a chance. I would recommended.
It's a fun cozy place with lots to do. In a quiet little town. Great people great scenery. Nice restaurant and bar that's super easy to get to. Locals are very friendly! But there is always room to improve!
Fantastic place for people of all ages. For a smaller resort, this place offers a tremendous number of options. Friendly staff make it that much better. It isn't cheap, but weekend packages are available which can help with that. Water park is AWESOME. And the whole place is well maintained and clean.
Great hotel. Full kitchen with fine finishes and quality furniture. A separate loft area sleeps 3 (what kids don't love a loft?) and a separate bedroom for mom and dad. Plus, the stay includes passes to Silver Rapids Water Park for both arrival day and departure day! All in all, a great quick escape with the kids!
The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was a little small and the pull out bed was awful! Plus it only had 1 thin blanket (with a hole in it) and 1 pillow. The front desk staff did bring more pillows and another blanket when I called. It was clean though! The water park was fun but definitely not anything special. We did not like that the water park was in a totally different building then the hotel. We had to walk outside in the freezing weather and on slick sidewalks in our wet swimming suits and with small children. For the high cost it was a a bit disappointing.
