Mother Nature was tempting ski enthusiasts Monday.

About seven centimetres of snow fell at Silver Star Mountain Resort, the first snow of the season.

“Mother Nature is telling us that we are in for a fantastic snow season,” said Brad Baker, operations manager.

Silver Star anticipates opening for alpine skiing Nov. 29.

Nordic skiing is scheduled to open in early-November.

“This significant snowfall just adds to the excitement the Silver Star team has for the winter ahead.”

New this season, the resort is offering Canada’s first all-inclusive season pass and day ticket.

“My One Pass provides each and every one of our guests the opportunity to enjoy all the Silver Star has to offer,” said Michael Sherwood, general manager.
