Silver Star Mountain Resort has a new corporate sponsor.

A partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink is powering the resort’s ski and snowboard terrain park and snowcross track for 2013.

“Our partnership with Rockstar let’s us build on the expansion work from last year, bringing the terrain park area to a whopping 20.5 acres,” said Robin Baycroft, resort services manager.

“We have more than 40 metal handrail and box features already within our fleet and are introducing a few more fat pipe designs, intermediate box features, and a signature Oakley O feature.”

Silver Star is the host mountain to one of the best freestyle ski clubs in Canada, training and outputting high caliber athletes. Silver Star Mountain Resort is also the home resort of Rockstar athlete Riley Leboe.

“We’re excited about our new partnership with Silver Star Mountain and, as the preferred energy drink of the resort, our sponsorship will extend a number of benefits to guests, adding to the already award-winning experience at Silver Star,” said Daniel St-Cyr, Rockstar director of sales.

“In addition, it gives us the opportunity to present the new Rockstar Park this season, which we are stoked about.”

Recently, Silver Star received the Best Park in the West Award, fifth place, from SBC Resort Guide.

“It’s mind-boggling that Silver Star has such a great park setup with absolutely zero snowmaking,” says Adam Levitt, editor of SBC Resort Guide.

“An incredibly hard-working crew keeps their park in top shape and a high-speed six-pack chair allows for as many laps in the day as your legs can stand.”

Riders and skiers can also test their speed and skills on the Olympic-style Rockstar snowcross course, featuring berms, rollers, quick straight-a-ways and a choice of multiple lanes, including a through-the-trees option.
