E205 (Exit 205) Chapter
The Exit 205 Chapter is a collaborative effort between the thriving towns of Silverthorne and Dillon. These two neighboring mountain times have joined forces to bring more awareness and visitors to Exit 205, the first exit after Eisenhower Tunnel.
Nestled along the Blue River, surrounded by the majestic high peaks of the Rocky Mountains, and only an hour’s drive from Denver, the Town of Silverthorne offers an outstanding location for businesses of all types and sizes. More and more businesses are finding our riverfront mountain town to be a strategic location for their success.
Silverthorne’s location along Interstate 70, and our close proximity to five of North America’s premier ski resorts, brings an unbeatable demographic to our front door. With more than 10 million vehicles travelling to Silverthorne via Interstate 70 annually, it is truly a “river of revenue” for businesses that locate here.
With abundant shopping and outdoor recreation opportunities, visitors flock to Silverthorne year round. The Outlets at Silverthorne, an upscale regional outlet, is a major guest attraction bringing tens of thousands of customers to Silverthorne annually. In addition to a large visitor base, Silverthorne also enjoys Summit County’s largest population of year-round residents, adding a consistent and valuable customer base for our businesses.
Take a closer look at investing in Silverthorne, and you will see why American City Business Journals ranked the Town as one of the Top 10 micropolitan areas in the country, and why Foreign Direct Investment magazine has named Silverthorne as a “North American City of the Future.”
