Hiking and Trail Running Take in the epic valley views

Explore the panoramic views of the beautiful Okanagan Valley and the Monashee Mountains.

Take in the valley views from high up in the mountains. There's nothing like sweeping views from high above. Ride the Des Scheumann Summit express Gondola to the summit, or climb your way up and take in the breathtaking vistas of the spectacular Monashee Mountain Range and Okanagan Valley. 

Enjoy the cooler mountain air, view the wildflowers, forage for wild berries, or hike the upper mountain trails for a chance to see Okanagan wildlife. 

Hikers visiting Monday to Thursday who are looking to ride a chairlift to the top of the mountain will need to ride the Comet Express. Access to the Comet chair requires hiking down to the start of the lift which takes approximately 20 minutes and is a fairly gentle hike. Once at the top of the mountain, you can hike down on your choice of four great hiking trails to the village.

Things to note

  • A valid hiking ticket is needed. To help ensure your safety, all hikers and trail runners are asked to pick up a complimentary hiking trail day ticket at the Ticket Office before heading out on the mountain
  • If you are a regular hiker or trail runner at SilverStar and do not want to come to the village to collect a ticket each time you're on the mountain, you have the option of purchasing a hiking season pass for a processing fee of $25. The season pass is for your convenience while the day ticket is free. Please be aware neither the day ticket or season pass allows access to the chairlift.
