SilverStar Shut Down For Season
Due the the COVID-19 outbreak, SilverStar Mountain has taken steps today to shut down the mountain for the remainder of the 2019-2020 winter season. See the below release from the mountain, just released this afternoon.
SILVERSTAR MOUNTAIN RESORT, BC, March 17, 2020 – We have continued to monitor the dynamic and unprecedented COVID-19 public health crisis and, as a result of the unfolding events surrounding it, SilverStar Mountain Resort has made the careful determination to close for the remainder of the 2019/20 winter season.
We understand many of you – like us – may be disappointed but we are fortunate to have enjoyed a great season and we appreciate your understanding and support in this extremely dynamic situation.
This is a serious situation and closing our operations marks a significant step to help stop the spread of COVID-19. During this time, we encourage everyone to do their part to enable social distancing, an important step to mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19.
We continue to share the same belief as many of you – that spending time in the mountains, enjoying nature and the outdoors is important to leading a fulfilling life, and this is why we made the difficult but right decision to close operations for the season.
Our ultimate goal is for us all to have a healthy return to the mountains, to ski, ride, hike, bike and play after this situation improves. We thank you for being part of our SilverStar Mountain Resort community.
It is our employees, our guests and the greater Okanagan community that make SilverStar Mountain Resort what it is and for that, we cannot thank you all enough for your support. Please stay safe so that we may enjoy more days adventuring and doing what we love with those we love for many years to come.
