Cross Country Skiing
Welcome to Canada's largest network of daily groomed cross-country ski trails.
Voted #1 XC Ski Resort in Canada by USA Today!
There's no better way to experience the beauty of SilverStar than exploring our cross-country trails. Begin with over 55 km of trails at SilverStar, varying in difficulty from Green to Blue to Black. A dual mountain cross-country ski pass will then allow you to explore an additional 50 km of connecting trails at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre.
Cross-country skiers can take the Comet, Alpine Meadows, Summit and Silver Queen ski lifts during regular operating hours to the upper trails, or use the cross-mountain trails that gently wind up towards Paradise Camp and the connecting trails to Sovereign Lake.
Two warming huts at SilverStar and one at Sovereign Lake make for fantastic lunch stops. The new "Chap-tik" cabin at SilverStar is the gateway to Alder Point and the most stunning views on the mountain.

“Voted the #1 Nordic destination by US National Ski Team.”
Forbes Travel Magazine
“SilverStar really is my favorite early season training site, with its great snow and abundance of trails. The atmosphere and amenities offered within the resort are second to none”
2002 Olympic Medallist Nordic Skiing
“SilverStar is the ultimate Nordic winter paradise. My favorite thing about SilverStar is the evening workouts. Skiing from the door, through the snow mushrooms on the trees, and watching the sun set over the Monashee Mountains is something that keeps me coming back.”
2002 Olympian Nordic Skiing
Currently ranked Top 30 in the World
“SilverStar Ski Resort is the premier year-round cross country ski training centre in North America and definitely one of the better centres in the world. All of the facilities are of an excellent quality and everything is in walking distance that is needed to support teams and athletes. The trail system has all the variability, from World Cup to tourist level, that is necessary to support learning skiers to the world's best (i.e. Beckie Scott, silver medallist, 2002 Olympics). Climate is moderate, so there is never compromising of training due to cold and the most necessary item, snow, is very abundant. The walk out the door access to all facilities gives coaches and athletes the greatest flexibility in developing training plans on a daily and essentially a minute-by-minute basis. If you aren't at SilverStar in November and are preparing for the upcoming season, you have missed where it is happening!”
