Get ready to make tracks at Silver Star Mountain Resort.

The nordic season officially gets underway Friday with more than 20 kilometres of trails groomed.

“I’ve been out there myself assisting with the rolling of the trails and I can’t wait to click into my skis and start gliding,” said Guy Paulsen, nordic manager, adding that there’s 25 centimetres of snow at the summit and more of the white stuff in the forecast.

Skiers will be able to access the 20 kilometres of upper trails by skiing out Cross Mountain Trail, up Cabin Trail and on to Paradise.

Paulsen is equally excited about the upcoming nordic camps starting Nov. 21.

“Nordic enthusiasts have enjoyed expert instruction, excellent camaraderie, great snow, and the ski-in and ski-out convenience of our charming resort village for years,” he said.

The resort has also launched major changes to its website —

“You will find the latest and greatest photos, videos, tweets, and facebook posts right on the home page and of course the idea is for the community at large to get involved and share the great times they have had at Silver Star by posting their own media,” said Milli Cann, guest relations manager.

Booking accommodation and ski-and-stay packages will also be available.

“The key information people are looking for like weather updates and webcams will be easy to find right from the home page and more in-depth information is neatly presented in drop down and accordion style menus,” said Cann.
