SilverStar & Sovereign Lake December 7‑10, 2023

We’re back on the mountain!! Once again we head off on our traditional, pre-Christmas three-day trip to ski and stay at the SilverStar resort, for a relaxing few days with as much skiing or R&R as you like. SilverStar consistently has the best early season conditions anywhere in BC, and offers over 100km of groomed cross-country ski trails, downhill skiing, and snowshoeing.

We will be departing early Thursday morning, arriving in SilverStar mid-afternoon giving you time to unpack and have dinner, or do some night-skiing.

We will spend the next three days (Friday through Sunday) skiing at Sovereign Lake and SilverStar. The joint trail networks of Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre and SilverStar Mountain Resort offer over 105km of expertly groomed trails (suitable for both classic and skate skiing).

You can ski either Sovereign Lakes or SilverStar, or you can 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.

NOTE: Due to the difficulties on the road to Sovereign Lake in recent years, bus companies, including ISL, will no longer drive up to the Sovereign Lake. Instead, we have made arrangements with a local shuttle company. On Friday and Saturday there will be two shuttlesto Sovereign Lake in the morning, at approx. 9 and 10 a.m. In the afternoon there will be two shuttle runs back to Silverstar at approx. 2 and 3 p.m. Note that the shuttle holds a maximum of 24 passengers, so we will use a sign-up sheet to ensure everyone can make it to Sovereign Lake and back.

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.

Accommodation: At SilverStar we will be staying at the Snowbird Lodge and Vance Creek hotel offering a mix of 3-person studios and double-rooms with kitchenettes. Rooms will be allocated to best accommodate the whole group, but if there is a group of 3 of you that would like to room together, feel free to indicated that and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
