Star opens trails

Silver Star Mountain Resort’s bike park opens for the summer season June 27.

But for those who can’t wait, the resort is providing a sneak peak by opening early for two bonus days June 22 and 23.

“The resort has so much to offer in summer, including trails to suit all types of riders,” says Ian Galbraith, bike park manager.

“We’re particularly excited to open our new cross-country trails this year and offer riders of a wide range of diverse terrain, technicality and amazing views.”

Fed by the Comet Express lift, Silver Star’s bike park features a total of 18 dedicated mountain bike trails and jump features and a vertical drop of 760 metres.

The park’s longest run is the seven-kilometre Paradise trail, a wide, hard-packed trail from mountaintop to village.
