SilverStar Museum goes back in time with new stories

Chance to win piece of history

It’s an evening of all new stories from the old days with a chance to take home a piece of SilverStar history.

SilverStar Museum is hosting an evening of stories from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s as well as a green chair auction Jan. 17.

“Come and honour the pioneers of Silver Star Mountain. Listen to the outrageous stories and adventures of real people who made SilverStar what it is today,” said Patti Shales Lefkos with the museum. “Tales will be told of ski patrol adventures and misadventures along with tidbits of gossip from The Star Loft Lounge and the ski shop inside the old day lodge.”

The focus of the event is to raise awareness of continued fundraising effort to create a SilverStar Museum on the mountain to preserve the mountain’s history for future generations.

The silent auction opens Jan. 17 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and at the event until 6 p.m. The winner will be announced at the closing of the event. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Cash bar and appetizers available. Limited tickets are available and are $25 at The Village Ski Shop.
