Count down to summer!

Silver Star Bike Park is set to open for 2012 Bike Season with an early season Bonus Weekend.  June 23 and 24 bikers will be able to get a first taste of the bike season when the resort revs the lift up for Saturday and Sunday to whet the appetite of all those bike enthusiasts who are chomping at the bit to start the DH season.

The trails are going to mix of conditions this weekend but most mountain bikers are just keen to get out and ride.  Most of the trails will be open on Saturday and Sunday with a few exceptions.  Bikers coming to ride are encouraged to visit our trail report here for detailed descriptions and updates on each trail.

After last ride on Sunday evening the lifts will close down mid-week to reopen on June 29 for regular operations seven days a week until September 9.  June 29 will also be the resorts first Extended Play evening ever when the bike park stays open until 7:30 p.m.

This summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest in Silver Star’s history.  Silver Star has new activities like Frisbee Golf and Geocaching being added to the non-mountain bike specific activities like horseback riding, 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.
