The weather gods are smiling on Silver Star Mountain Resort as 29 cm of fresh, dry powder has fallen in the last 24 hours just in time as the mountain starts its $10 night skiing today.

“Snow like this is what skiers and riders live for,” says Anne Haight, director of sales and marketing, Silver Star Mountain Resort, “There are a lot of giddy and excited people in our ski village right now.”

“We cancelled our manager’s meeting today and declared a Snow Day," says General Manager Michael Sherwood. "I’ve also been hearing rumours that businesses in Vernon are reporting they are experiencing a high number of employees calling in sick. The 30 cm rule is in effect.”

Best-of-the-Okanagan-First-PlaceSilver Star Mountain Resort was voted Best Ski Hill by readers of Okanagan Life. The resort picked up a record nine awards for Best of the Okanagan, including Best Place to Get Married and Best Tourist Attraction.

Local skiers now save $15 on night skiing as the price drops to $10. Night skiing at Silver Star runs Fridays and Saturdays only. Silver Star’s recent extension of its MyMtn FlexiCard means that lift passes are available for $60 a day.

The MyMtn FlexiCard entitles a lift pass holder unlimited access to downhill and Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, and ice-skating. It costs $179 for adults and is valid for any three days on the mountain. After the initial three days, the card continues to offer further savings all season long.
