SilverStar Mountain Resort opened November 24th with over 2,000 guests to mark the opening of the winter season. The blue sky day and excited crowds added to the fun in celebrating the opening of the new Des Schumann Gondola.
Director of Sales & Marketing Ian Jenkins commented “Recent snowfall and a delayed opening of the resort meant better conditions on the slope”.
Operations Director Brad Baker described recent snowfall on the hill “was just enough for our groomers to work their magic and create early season skiing on the upper half of the mountain for our guests”.
Temperatures stayed below freeing all day on the hill with the sun coming out early-mid morning creating a perfect combination for resort guests.
The resort is set to open more terrain and lifts as the season continues.
