Come Up and Ski the Back Side of the Star – Powder Gulch Express Opens!

(Vernon, BC) It's the day that North Okanagan powder hounds anticipate each and every season – the opening of the Powder Gulch Express at Silver Star! On Thursday, November 30th at 8:30am, the bullwheels will turn, and the chairs will be loaded with excited skiers and riders looking to access over forty runs on what locals call the ‘Dark Side of the Star’.

“Early season conditions are terrific” said Anne Haight, Marketing Manager. “The snow is so light, dry and plentiful. Our settled snow base is over a metre and growing. I personally can’t wait to make some turns on Sunny Glades this Thursday.”
