Area Information: Vernon, British Columbia

Overview: Languid tracks meander their way through paradigmatic alpine meadows bedecked with a rainbow of vibrantly colored wildflowers. This peaceful, locals' getaway offers the perfect weekend spot for someone who is looking to enjoy a variety of lift accessed trails without huge crowds clogging the runs. From green to black, Silver Star Bike Park builds their trails to keep riders entertained, but also providing them with progressively built runs that help to prepare riders when they are ready to advance to the next step.

    The resort's village alights at the mountain's halfway point, which is a unique trait, rarely found amongst North America's mountain resorts. This unique set-up allows biking and non-biking patrons alike access to inter-mountain walking and hiking trails that offer splendid views of the resort and bike runs. So when the summer biking season rolls around, make sure to escape the sweltering, low land temperatures and take your bike for a spin in the crisp mountain air welcoming you at Silver Star!
