Silverthorne, Co. is named after Judge Silverthorn, Summit County pioneer and judge from the late 1800s, known as "Hangin' Judge Silverthorn" for his strict demeanor. The town of Silverthorne was incorporated September, 1967.

Silverthorne is one of Summit County's bustling ski area gateway towns right off I-70 and can provide a less expensive alternative to staying at the base of the mountain. The surrounding Ptarmigan and Eagles Nest Wilderness areas are excellent for outdoor recreation of all kinds. Once the snow melts, Silverthorne’s Blue River becomes a big draw. Anglers have a field day here. The Blue River sports four different types of fat and feisty trout. Fly-fishing is the preferred method, but lure fishing is also effective along the banks. If fishing or skiing don’t suit your fancy, then perhaps Silverthorne’s prime shopping will excite you.
