Silver Mountain Resort does not allow dogs on the gondola or on the mountain on Event Weekends. This is for the safety of the dogs, the spectators, and race participants. !!!DOGS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE GONDOLA ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY OR SUNDAY!!!

Silver Mountain Resort allows pets on leashes in the village, and there are a number of pet-friendly rooms available at the lodge, but the rules for dogs on the mountain are different when major events are being held. The Silver Kings Hard Enduro is a major event, and for the safety of all parties (dogs included) dogs will not be allowed on the gondola on any race/event days. Please contact the Silver Mountain Resort directly if you have any questions about this Event Weekend Policy as it pertains to dogs. The Silver Mountain Resort Event Weekend Safety Policy can be found HERE. This policy will be strictly enforced by the Silver Mountain Resort staff.

Important!!! The Silver Kings Hard Enduro will be run on the Silver Mountain Ski Resort terrain. This is all private property.

This year the Prologue will be much closer to the gondola on the top of the mountain. This decision was made primarily to make spectating this fun event more accessible for everyone.



Spectators will ride up the mountain on the gondola and arrive at the main gondola building. This building not only has bathrooms, but also a food court with open seating, the Moguls 21 bar & restaurant, as well as some outdoor seating. There should be at least one additional beer/drink tent set up at one of the spectator points, but that has not yet been confirmed (stay tuned).

There are also VRBOs in and around Kellogg. Please check for availability online at your favorite rental site (there are so many these days that there’s no point in having links here).



Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark: As previously mentioned, most rooms booked at the Silver Mountain Resort (not the Silver Inn) come with some passes to this stellar attraction. Click here if you’d like more info!

Supermarkets: Yokes Fresh Market in Kellogg, Walmart and Mae’s Market in Smelterville. These are close, but most people will prefer to drive to them.

Dining: There are a lot of restaurants in Kellogg!!! We’ve personally gone around town and let the local eateries know that the race is being held, so they can be prepared for hungry racers and their families.



Most likely sunny and dry, but this is a true ski mountain. What does that mean? Be prepared for “anything”.

Clothing recommendations: Layers are your friend, as a warm summer day can turn into the threat of snow very quickly. Bring sunscreen and a hat, but also include gloves and warm gear if mother nature decides to turn down the temperature. Worst case scenario is that you need to ride down the gondola to grab more clothes…but make sure you’ve brought them, and they are available just in case!

You’ll see race-spectator veterans with backpacks that hold everything from water and snacks to a compactable down jacket, beanie, and gloves.
