UPDATE: SilverStar’s course of action in response to COVID-19: Operations Suspended

SILVERSTAR MOUNTAIN RESORT, BC , March 14, 2020

At SilverStar Mountain Resort our top priority—the health and safety of our staff, guests and local community—remains at the forefront and for this reason SilverStar Mountain Resort will suspend all resort operations starting tomorrow, March 15, 2020 through March 22, 2020. We will continue to monitor the dynamic COVID-19 situation and reassess our approach for the rest of the season during this timeframe.

The suspension will include all lift operations, food and beverage, retail and rental services. SilverStar Mountain Resort lodging and property management facilities will remain open to serve the guests who are on site or those who have existing reservations, but we are not taking new reservations for the remainder of March, 2020.

“Suspending our operations is a necessary step for us to take in support of efforts to limit the spread and risks associated with COVID-19,” says Ken Derpak. “This is an unusual and dynamic situation, however, we continue to believe outdoor mountain recreation provides a meaningful escape to nature, which is what made this a difficult decision, but the correct decision for now.”

Given the extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19, SilverStar Mountain Resort has modified our cancellation policies and the SilverStar Mountain Resort customer services team will be in contact with guests to cancel or modify reservations. We anticipate heavy call volume over the next several days and appreciate guests’ patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries.
