BC’s Silver Star Mountain Introduces ‘my1Pass’
British Columbia's Silver Star Mountain Resort is making sure you get your money’s worth out of their 2012/13 season pass, dubbed “my1Pass.” The pass celebrates Silver Star’s ten millionth skier visit.
Pass holders get unlimited skiing and snowboarding on more than 3,065 acres of terrain. There’s more: All Alpine Season Pass and Alpine Day Ticket holders also get – at no additional cost - unlimited access to 55 km Nordic trails, 16 km of marked snowshoe trails, Tube Town Adventure Park, and ice skating at the resort’s Brewer’s Pond.
There are other perks too, including lift ticket and on-mountain discounts, special accommodation offers, and reciprocal deals at other resorts. Some restrictions apply.
“The new program will inspire our guests to enjoy the skiing as well as some of the other amazing activities that we have to offer…and not have to worry about cost,” says General Manager Michael Sherwood.
Season passes start at $675 for adults if purchased before Oct. 14; $460 for 13 to 18-year-olds, and $415 for kids 6-12. Adult season passes purchased after Oct. 14 increase to $1,090, $840, and $520 respectively. (Note: All prices are Canadian dollars and for single skiers.)
Silver Star began as a local ski hill in the 1960s. The resort is a 60-minute drive from Kelowna International Airport, a 5-hour drive from Vancouver, and a 6-hour drive from Calgary.
