Getting Here

We invite you to visit the Vernon Snowmobile Trails at Silver Star Provincial Park. Our high elevation location on the eastern ridge of the Okanagan valley ensures dependable snow depths and mild winter temperatures making the Silver Star area an ideal winter recreation destination for alpine and nordic skiing, ski touring, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.

The Okanagan is known for dry champagne powder and our location features amazing views of the Monashee Mountains to the east and the City of Vernon to the west.

We want to make your first (and every) visit the very best so please read the information below for a map and directions, information on how and where to park and how to purchase a day pass (or Season Pass).

If you have any questions please contact us by email at [email protected]
