Silver Star Mountain Resort near Vernon, BC, has released news of its improvements for the 2014 ski and snowboard season, including a new learning zone and a partnership with Kingfisher heli skiing.


The Zone

Brand new for the 2013-14 season, The Zone, located next to Silver Star village, is comprised of three distinct components: the Learning Zone, the Jib Zone and the Air Zone. The new and expanded Learning Zone will feature wider and gentler slopes to provide a better learning experience for skiers and snowboarders. The Jib Zone will offer an introductory terrain park area for learning small rails, and the Air Zone will feature a Katal Airbag for practicing free style jumps. The airbag is available to anyone for a nominal fee and will be operated on Friday and Saturday evenings by the Silver Star Free Style Club.


Kingfisher Heli-skiing

Silver Star has partnered with Kingfisher Heli-Skiing to offer powder seekers the perfect winter getaway. Heli-skiers will have access to 117,000 acres of terrain in the breathtaking Monashee Mountains from December 26 to January 15.


New Skier/Boarder Cross

Accessible by the Home Run T-bar, the new skier/boarder cross will consist of berms, rollers, quick straight-a-ways, multiple lanes, choosable paths, “through the trees” directions, and a few jumps for riders and skiers to test their skills and take it to the next level.
