Summer Activities at Silver Star Mountain

Downhill Mountain Biking:

The summer experience keeps growing and gaining in popularity each year. Best known for the fantastic downhill mountain biking that you access using the converted 6 passenger chairlift that brings you to 18 trails and 1600 vertical feet of riding (from easy to expert) with over 69 kilometers of terrain.

Cross Country Biking:

Silver Star features an extensive cross country trail system.  This is suitable for all ages and ability levels; a fantastic family outing.  The total cross country trails exceed 35+km including the new Beowulf trail. 

Hiking and Trail Running:

Silver Star has 16 kilometres of forest and mountain trails offer panoramic views of the beautiful Okanagan Valley and Monashee Mountains, with plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife and wildflowers along the way.

All hikers and trail runners are asked to pick up a complimentary pass at the Ticket Office before heading out on the mountain.

SilverStar Gondola:

Take a ride up the mountain and get some amazing panoramic views! The SilverStar Gondola is for hikers only – no bikes!

Gnome Roam:

An activity for the entire family! A self-guided tour will take you on a tour to find the magical SilverStar Gnomes. Make sure you head to the ticket office first and pick up a map!
