The Big Picture

Sovereign Lake NC and SilverStar Mountain Resort are teaming up to present the first ever Sovereign2SilverStar Ski Marathon. 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 will 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, spring 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.

Registration deadline is 8pm on March 27th.

Giving Back

As skiers, we know how much sport has given to us: physical and mental health plus simple joy. Even in non-active life stages (career, children, illness, …), we always know that sport is waiting for us. There are children who are denied these lifelong benefits for financial reasons. KidSport exists to give the life-changing power of sport to kids who would otherwise miss out. Donate here to change a child’s life or register to help us contribute to KidSport.
