Silver Star enters into agreement with Whistler Blackcomb

Holders of a 2015/16 alpine season pass will receive a 25 per cent discount at Whistler Blackcomb

Silver Star Mountain Resort season passholders are getting an additional benefit.

Holders of a 2015/16 alpine season pass will receive a 25 per cent discount on single-day and multi-day tickets at Whistler Blackcomb with no blackout dates.

In addition, North Okanagan skiers will get the chance to stretch their ski season well into late May with Whistler Blackcomb’s extended spring skiing.

“We are continuously looking for new and exciting ways to add value for our season passholders,” said Dave Brownlie, Whistler Blackcomb president.

“We look forward to welcoming Silver Star passholders this winter so that they can come and experience what skiing and riding in Whistler is all about.”

Whistler Blackcomb is North America’s largest ski resort with more than 8,100 acres of varied terrain and a mile-high vertical.

“We’re thrilled to offer this great added value to our passholders,” said Ken Derpak, Silver Star’s managing director.

“Partnering with Whistler Blackcomb in its 50th anniversary year is really exciting for us and a fantastic value-add for our guests.”

The array of bonuses the Star’s season passholders receive includes access to 39 free ski days at Powder Alliance member resorts, a collection of 14 ski resorts throughout North America.

Silver Star is anticipating an alpine opening Nov. 26, with the nordic trails expected to be ready for the new season Nov. 12.
