Silver Star Bike Park Now Open: New Trails Unveiled

Silver-Star-Bike-Park-Now-Open

Silver Star Mountain Resort opened its Bike Park today and is now operating seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., until September 1. All downhill and cross-country trails are open, with the exception of the very top trails, Double Dog and Shazam which are expected to open in two weeks time.

“Our trails are in prime condition and in fact, they are the best they have ever been for an opening,” says Cameron Sorensen, Silver Star bike park manager. “We had over 800 people at the resort for our bonus opening weekend and everyone had smiles on their faces.”

For the first time, cross-country riders will experience the plus five kilometres of Silver Star’s newest XC trail network. For beginners, the new Explorer Loop adds an additional 500 metres to the already existing Mountain View and Sidewinder trails, while for intermediate riders the new Silver Shack and Chakra add an additional 4.6 kilometers to the park.

Additional trails will open throughout the summer. A cross-country day pass costs $5 and season passes are available for $37.50. Downhill season passes are available for $389 for adults. For an additional $20, riders can choose a XC add-on. Full day tickets cost $43 for adults.

The resort has also added a new food truck this year and a newly licensed patio at the Saloon so guests can enjoy a refreshing beverage under the warm Okanagan sun. Riders and hikers can start their day with a hot, hearty breakfast at Town Hall in the village and a barbecue lunch is offered by a food truck parked at the top of the Comet chair between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekends and holidays.

Silver Star’s bike park features more than 300 dirt jumps and 600 berms. Trails range from green (easy) to double-black (expert), from gently winding through wildflower meadows to adrenalin pumping runs packed with berms, table tops and features that challenge the hardcore rider. A four-bike carrier lift, Comet Express, allows access to 18 trails and 1,600 vertical feet of riding in under seven minutes. It runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the Summit chair runs from noon until 4 p.m. on Fridays to Sundays.

For more leisurely outdoor pursuits, hikers can choose to access hiking trails from a chair lift or from the village. Trail passes can be purchased from Ski Dazzle ticket office.

New this summer is the 3-day Ride Card for $109. Season passes and the Ride Card can be purchased online at www.bikesilverstar.com or at Ski Dazzle in the village.
