The Town of Montezuma has a rich history. The town of Montezuma is a former mining camp that sits at an elevation of 10,200 feet (3,110 m), just west of the Continental Divide, nestled among mountains that reach an elevation of 12,000-13,000 feet (3,700-4,000 m) around it. It is situated in the upper valley of the Snake River above the ski resort of Keystone. The town founded in 1865 following the discovery of silver in the vicinity of nearby Argentine Pass.In 1890, at the height of the Colorado Silver Boom, the population reached nearly 10,000. At the time, the town had two stores, a post office, two hotels (the Summit House and the Rocky Mountain House), and a sawmill. It eventually had a smelter, as well, which allowed local separation of the silver and lead ores, which are typically found together in the region. At the town's peak, the mountainside around the town was location of numerous mines on the Belle and Blance lodes, operated by the Sts. John Mining Company, after which the nearby ghost town of Saints John is named. Saints John now consists of three cabins near timberline, at 10,764 feet.Today Montezuma is a the perfect base camp for mountain adventure. 4-wheelers, mountain bikers, hikers, snow mobiles and backcounty skiers come from all around to experience the high alpine adventure. The saying goes "There are no rules above 10,000 feet".Show More
