Once again we head off on our traditional, pre-Christmas three-day trip to ski SilverStar, which consistently has the best early season conditions anywhere in BC, and offers over 100km of groomed cross-country ski trails, downhill skiing, and snowshoeing.
This year we’ll be leaving Thursday morning at 8 a.m. and we’ll be staying at the Prestige Vernon Lodge in Vernon. We’ll arrive in the afternoon, giving you a chance to settle in at the hotel, enjoy the pool and hot tub, and find dinner at one of the nearby restaurants to get ready for a couple of full days of skiing.
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). If you want to ski at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre the bus will be stoping there in the morning en-route to SilverStar.
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.
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.
