The bike park is opened for the 2012 Bike Season last weekend to some very muddy conditions, for an early season Bonus Weekend. June 23 and 24 bikers were able to get a first taste of the bike season when we reved the lifts up to whet the appetite of all those bike enthusiasts who were chomping at the bit to start the DH season.
The trails were a mix of conditions this weekend but most of us are just keen to get out and ride. Most of the trails (around 90%) are open but if you’re coming to ride please visit our trail report here for detailed descriptions and updates on each trail.
On Sunday evening the lifts closed down mid-week to reopen on June 29 for regular operations seven days a week until September 9. This Friday is the FIRST Extended Play so don’t miss out. Friday’s are also Ladies Nights! So join other ladies for a group ride at 5pm at Ski Dazzle: http://summer.skisilverstar.com/s/friday-nights-ladies-night
This summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest in Silver Star’s history. We have new activities like Frisbee Golf and Geocaching being added to the non-mountain bike specific activities like scenic chairlift rides and wildflower tours.
Likewise, Silver Star has a very busy events schedule planned for the summer months. The resort is back hosting races with a BC Cup downhill race on July 22 and will also host the 5 Peaks trail running series July 28 and Mountain Bike Festival on August 25 & 26. For more info on events and activities please visit “Things to Do” section of the website.
