Partners in the S2S

The Sovereign 2 SilverStar Ski Marathon is a joint project between Sovereign Lake Nordic Club and SilverStar Mountain Resort, along with the SilverStar and Vernon ski communities. 

Sovereign Lake Nordic Club

The biggest ski club in Canada with approximately 3000 members, SLNC has a 50km Nordic trail system that is groomed daily from early November to mid-April, then reopens in May for the Spring Fling snow camp. See www.sovereignlake.com for more.

SLNC has hosted World Cup races, World Masters races, and thousands of happy skiers each season.

SilverStar Mountain Resort

SilverStar is famous as an alpine ski area with endless Okanagan champagne powder. Locals know the 50km of nordic trails with gondola access to the peak, snowshoe trails, fatbike trails, ice skating, and a National Altitude Training Centre. In summer, this becomes a mountain biking destination with both lift and cross country trail systems. See www.skisilverstar.com for more.

SilverStar Community

The community of SilverStar has homes, hotels, and restaurants with ski in/ski out access.

In addition to 105km of daily groomed Nordic trails between SilverStar and Sovereign Lake, there are six (6) other Nordic areas within day-tripping distance.
