Ski areas working together

There is unprecedented co-operation between Silver Star Mountain Resort and Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre.

For the first time ever, the two nordic operators will now provide a dual area cross-country trail pass and co-host early-season cross-country camps.

“Local skiers, visiting guests, teams and associations have all been waiting for this to happen for years,”  said Guy Paulsen, Silver Star’s nordic manager.

This step now places the combined network as the largest groomed cross-country trail system in Western Canada and the second largest in the country.

Skiers can now access a combined 105 kilometres of groomed and track-set trails on one pass.

“Together, we can truly offer a world-class experience,” said Scott Lemon, Sovereign Lake’s general manager.

The four early-season camps will be held in November and early December.

Registration for the camps and sales of the dual area passes starts Aug. 1.
