Once again we head off on our traditional, pre-Christmas three-day trip to SilverStar resort which consistently offers the best early season conditions anywhere in BC! This year we will be leaving Thursday morning at 8 a.m., arriving mid-afternoon. We’ll spend 3 nights at the Chilcoot Lodge and Lord Aberdeen hotels with ready access to over 100 km of groomed cross-country ski trails, downhill skiing, and snowshoeing.
Arriving in the afternoon means you will have the opportunity to do another half day of skiing. Or you may want to take it easy, get settled, explore the village and be ready for a full day of skiing the next day.
The joint trail networks of Sovereign Lake Nordic Center and SilverStar Mountain Resort offer over 105 km of expertly groomed trails (suitable for both classic and skate skiing). If you want to ski at Sovereign Lake Nordic Center you will be shuttled by our bus. You can also purchase a dual area cross-country pass that provides one gondola ride to the top of the SilverStar downhill area. From there you can decide to explore the Silver Star trails or cruise down Lars Taylor way to the Sovereign Lake trails.
If you’re a downhill skier, you can enjoy the 3269 acres of skiable terrain at the top-class Silverstar resort, widely known for its premium snow conditions. Snowshoers can also enjoy the many scenic trails at Silverstar.
