Warm weather closes Vernon ski hill lifts, terrain

Continued closures expected with forecast

Mother Nature is putting a damper on skiing, snowboarding and skating at SilverStar Mountain Resort.

The ski hill has closed Vance Creek (the Chute and part of Show-off), the main terrain park, Brewer’s Pond, Tube Town and all double black terrain on the backside.

“In consideration of the current weather forecast we expect our operations will be impacted in the coming days,” the resort said. “Our teams are constantly monitoring conditions and will continue to assess these throughout the week.”

Putnam Creek is open with limited terrain. All terrain left of Powder Gulch on the Sunny Ridge side is closed.

“Please respect the closures our patrol teams have in place and ski and ride on open terrain only, the closures are in place for the safety of our guests,” SilverStar’s website reads. “We will re-open closed terrain as it becomes safe to do so.”

The Bannister Terrain Park and Little Dipper Terrain Parks are open.

“We still have a few more days of mild weather under a persistent southwesterly flow. Expect intermittent mixed precipitation until Thursday. By Friday, snow levels will return to near village levels.”
