Winter is Here!

Winter has hit Pitkin! The wonderful winter wonderland is in full effect. The snow changes what is a familiar sight into something entirely new. If you’d like to check Pitkin out in the winter, give us a call or email! We can set you up with lodging, snowmobile rentals, recommendations on other activities, and places to eat.

Winter on the way!

Winter is on the way to Pitkin! We have had some snow storms recently, with more on the way. If you are thinking about heading to Pitkin for the winter holidays, give us a ring or email and let us know! We’d love to help you out with your trip!

Summer is coming!

Rainbow in Pitkin

As the snow continues to melt, we are beginning to look forward to Summer 2015! We should have a much earlier start to the riding season as the weather has been warm and sunny, resulting in an early snow melt. If you are looking for an early summer adventure, Pitkin will be the place to be! It is looking like main/popular trails may be open significantly earlier this year, giving you the chance to ride in mid June and have the trails all to yourself! If you are headed this way, please stop in the store and say hello this summer!

Winter lodging and snowmobile rentals!

Just a friendly reminder, we will have winter lodging and snowmobile rentals starting this winter season. Avoid the crowds and enjoy the serenity of the Gunnison National Forest in the winter! You can rent snowmobiles and ride right from the store (just like our ATV rentals!). No trailering, no wasting time getting to the mountains, just a whole day (or days) playing in the snow. For you skiers and snowboarders, we are just a short drive away from both Monarch Ski Area and Crested Butte Ski Area. Stay and play here, all while avoiding the crowds at all the big places this winter!

Additional lodging now available!

Some news for the store! We now have another unit to rent out! If you have tried calling about lodging and we were full, or couldn’t provide the dates you needed, please check back with us. This unit sleeps 4 people, and is $125 a night, with a 3 night minimum. Contact us on Facebook, the contact form, or email ( for more information!

New and Improved!!!

The Silver Plume General Store website might look a little different now! This is in advance of some new and exciting changes coming to the store this summer! We will be opening a grill at the store to serve food. This will give visitors to Pitkin a place to kick back, take a break from riding, hiking, fishing, etc. and grab a bite to eat. We will be offering items such as hamburgers, barbecue, and grilled cheese sandwiches. For more information, click on the grill link at the top!

Another new addition to the store, is the availability of Polaris side by sides (SXS) and Yamaha snowmobiles for rent! We are now taking reservations for the 2014 season, as well as the winter of 2014/2015 for snowmobiles. We believe you will find the pricing to be some of the best in the area, and the customer service to be world class. We want nothing more than for you to have a great day out in the Gunnison National Forest with your family and friends enjoying the sights! You can find more information and pricing here. If you have any questions or would like to reserve a machine, please contact us!

See you this summer!
