October 03, 2012 (Silver Star, BC) – Silver Star Mountain Resort and neighboring Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre, have re-instated a Dual Area Cross Country Trail Pass for the 2012/13 season.
For the first time the two resorts will co-host early season cross-country camps. These welcomed changes place the combined “Super Trail System” on Silver Star Mountain as the largest groomed cross country trail system in Western Canada and second largest in the country.
Cross-country skiers are applauding recent changes on Silver Star which will provide access to all trails through the introduction of one ticket at one low price. “The fact the I can ski everything hassle free is great,” says former National Cross Country Olympic Team Coach Mike Bell.
“Local skiers, visiting guests, teams and associations have all been waiting for this to happen for years,” says Sovereign Lake General Manager Scott Lemon. “The heightened level of cooperation between Silver Star Mountain Resort and Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre will benefit skiers as well as the sport in general,” added Paulsen.
Early season cross country camps will also be run together. Dates for the 2012 XC Supercamps are as follows:
