Students are hitting the slopes at Silver Star Mountain Resort.

The resort expects to be busy as spring break in the Vernon and North Okanagan-Shuswap school districts begins Monday and continues for two weeks.

“Conditions are great,” said Brad Baker, Silver Star operations director.

“We have had about 30 centimetres of snow in the past seven days and our alpine base is 235 centimetres. Clear, sunny skies are forecasted today. It’s spring conditions, nice mild temperatures. It’s as much about sun now as it is snow. Happy first day of spring.”

The resort’s last day of operations is April 9.
