Just 30 minutes from downtown Vernon, we have not one but two world-class cross-country ski destinations! Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre and Silver Star Mountian Resort both have great tracks, beautiful snow, and fantastic views. Folks from all over the world, including National Teams and Olympians, come to these facilities to train. We have access to these ski resorts in our backyard!
Both these fantastic resorts are now open for your 2017/18 cross-country ski adventures!
105 Km of skiing! Between Sovereign Lake and Silver Star, we have Canada’s largest daily groomed trail network. Did you catch that? The largest groomed cross-country ski network in Canada! Fantastic! So much to see! So many choices! You can choose to visit one destination, or you can explore both with a Dual Pass to gain access to all 105 kms. With routes ranging in difficulty from easy green, to ‘holy cow’ black trails, there is something for everyone to explore.
Choose Your Adventure
If you don’t have your own equipment, or you would like to try something new, both locations rent classic and skate ski gear. Renting is a great option to see if you like it before making the decision to buy all new equipment.
Get Ready for a Great Season
To kick off the season, I would suggest a ski lesson or two. Whether you decide to learn a new discipline, or your goal is to improve your current skills, everyone can benefit from more instruction. Both Sovereign Lake and Silver Star offer lesson packages.
I started my season with a lesson in Classic. It makes a difference knowing some proper skills, rather than doing the ‘shuffle’ around the mountain! Mind you, shuffling around the mountain is fine too, whatever it takes to get out and enjoy!
