Destination Silver Star telling the world what Vernon mountain has to offer

A summer at Silver Star

There is a lot more to SilverStar Mountain Resort than just skiing.

And Destination Silver Star wants the world to know it.

The goal of Destination Silver Star is to increase business opportunities for the Silver Star community while making it easier for visitors to discover all the family-friendly mountain adventures it offers.

With community as its guiding principle, Destination Silver Star has a website full of engaging My Silver Star digital stories as well as the announcement of a series of summer activities.

“The destination marketing and management organization, Destination Silver Star exists to maintain and enhance the Silver Star experience by growing the local economy, and increasing engagement through marketing, sales, media relations, events, research, and destination development. Founded in 2021, Destination Silver Star is a not-for-profit, membership-based organization with approximately 1,000 members representing accommodations, attractions, restaurants, retail and homeowners,” stated the organization.

“Silver Star may very well be the Okanagan’s best kept mountain secret with something for everyone in this natural playground. Get pumped up biking Canada’s second largest bike park, tackle the 35km XC bike trail- Beowolf, named after a legendary dragon-slaying Scandinavian warrior. Hike and sightsee the magical Des Scheumann Summit express gondola and take some time to explore something entirely unique - the “gnome roam” a mini-mystical world that resides amongst the mountain trails.”

Up-coming events include:

  • June 25 - Bike park opening and Multicultural Festival featuring live music and a local artisan market. Silver Star is also playing host to Slay the Dragon trail running race on this date.
  • July 27 - Aug. 1 - A bike festival featuring the return of Crankworx events. One of the long standing anchors of the summer season.
  • Aug. 11 - 14 - Reimagined Wine Festival showcasing the best of the Okanagan’s wine and food.
  • Sept. 10 - Celebrate Oktoberfest with Silver Star’s first Craft Beer & Cider Festival.
