Silver Star Mountain Resort is calling on skiers and foodies to attend the Mountain High Okanagan Celebration.

The ski-in, ski-out supper offers cross-country skiing and gourmet cuisine Nov. 23.

“If you’re an active cross-country skier, this incredible uniquely Okanagan adventure is for you,” said Guy Paulsen, nordic manager.

As the sun sets, guests will set out from the village and ski to the mid-mountain Paradise Camp. The resort’s culinary team has prepared a four-course fondue meal.

As the evening progresses, wine educator Gerrit Van Staalduinen will walk guests through food and Okanagan wine parings on a tasting tour of the valley. Feature wineries include ExNihilo Vineyards, Misconduct Wine Co, Moon Curser Vineyards and Mount Boucherie Winery.

Skiers can expect a gradual climb up 2.5 kilometres to Paradise Camp but it’s really an easy-going tour and all about having a great time,” said Paulsen.

“We’ll have two guides with the party goers, and we’re going to take an easy pace for those less experienced.”

The event is hosted by Okanagan Life magazine as part of its 25th anniversary.

Tickets to the Nov 23 event are $80 plus tax and available from okanaganlife.com.

Headlamps are recommended for night skiing. Rentals are available but should be reserved in advance. Contact the SnowSports School at 250-558-6065.
