SilverStar Mountain Resort opens this weekend for Nordic.


Mother Nature pulled through and SilverStar will open about 25 kilometres of groomed, packed and tracked set trails in the upper alpine trail system, this Saturday.

The Nordic trails opening this weekend are accessible from the village via Cross Mountain Trail or Pinnacles Trail near the Brewer’s Pond Base.

“We are very excited to kick off the cross-country ski season up here at SilverStar,” said Chantelle Deacon, media relations manager, SilverStar. “At this time, we will only be opening for the weekend, but there is a possibility we will stay open for cross–country next week, weather depending. It looks like there is lots of snow in the forecast, so we are very hopeful that we will be able to stay open.”

The forecast is currently calling for snow going into the weekend.

All SilverStar lifts will remain closed. Due to the very long climb up the trails, and with no lifts open, SilverStar recommends only intermediate and advanced cross-country skiers hit the trails this weekend.

SilverStar Mountain Resort still tentatively plans to open for alpine on Nov. 28.
