Sovereign Lake NC and SilverStar Mountain Resort have teamed up to present the Sovereign2SilverStar Ski Marathon, now in its third season. A point to party event with two of everything: two days (classic and skate), two distances each day (40km and 21km), and two ski areas (start at Sovereign Lake and finish on Main Street of SilverStar village).
Finishing is Winning: After the ‘competitive’ waves start, the smaller ‘fun’ waves are be spaced out to allow everyone to enjoy their time on the trails. With the largest daily groomed network of Nordic trails in Canada, there are no laps or repeated trail sections, just a lot of scenery.
The two areas are working together to build an adventure that carries on well after the skiing is done. When you get to the finish line you’re just getting started as the party gets underway at the great local restaurants and bars.
Twenty minutes away and 1,200m lower in elevation, springtime in Vernon is something to experience with paddling, mountain biking, wine tasting, and golfing options.
Will we have snow in April? With the perfect altitude and 7 metres of annual snowfall the answer is Yes! Just ask anyone who has been to our Spring Fling skiing week in May. Or see our video of what a ‘lower than normal’ snow base looked like during the 2022 event. Or another blue hard wax day in 2023.
