***UPDATED, MARCH 17, 2020*** Please see the recent release from Silver Star Mountain. The mountain will cease downhill skiing operations effective immediately due to the spread of COVID-19. The mountain will remain closed for the remainder of the season.
Despite no downhill skiing, there are still plenty of food options at Silver Star open for your business. The Bulldog, Bugaboos, The Red Antler, 1609 and Long John’s all remain open for business. In addition, the mountain remains a great place to go for hikes with the family, go cross country skiing or even go snowshoeing and enjoy the sunshine and nice weather ahead!
SILVERSTAR MOUNTAIN RESORT, BC, March 14, 2020 – At SilverStar Mountain Resort our top priority—the health and safety of our staff, guests and the local community—remains at the forefront and for this reason, SilverStar Mountain Resort will suspend all resort operations starting tomorrow, March 15, 2020, through March 22, 2020. We will continue to monitor the dynamic COVID-19 situation and reassess our approach for the rest of the season during this timeframe.
The suspension will include all lift operations, food and beverage, retail and rental services. SilverStar Mountain Resort lodging and property management facilities will remain open to serve the guests who are on-site or those who have existing reservations, but we are not taking new reservations for the remainder of March 2020.
“Suspending our operations is a necessary step for us to take in support of efforts to limit the spread and risks associated with COVID-19,” says Ken Derpak. “This is an unusual and dynamic situation, however, we continue to believe outdoor mountain recreation provides a meaningful escape to nature, which is what made this a difficult decision, but the correct decision for now.”
Given the extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19, SilverStar Mountain Resort has modified our cancellation policies and the SilverStar Mountain Resort customer services team will be in contact with guests to cancel or modify reservations. We anticipate heavy call volume over the next several days and appreciate guests’ patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries.
