The Town of Silt
Historically, the Town of Silt has been an agricultural and mining area, with hard-working families that support their community in fields of construction, engineering and oil and gas development. The climate in Silt is mostly mild and comfortable through all seasons.
Silt sits astride Interstate-70, about 67 miles east of Grand Junction and 20 miles west of Glenwood Springs. During the last several decades, the Town has become a bedroom community for the towns of Vail, Snowmass Village and Aspen, as land and home values in those communities have soared. Public transportation from Silt to Aspen is available, see www.rfta.com.
The area around Silt boasts hunting, fishing, hiking, rafting, biking, boating and horseback riding throughout much of the year.
