We are all aware that a solid fitness routine is a must to take on a multi-day heliski holiday. But it is also true before going on your chosen heli holiday it is a good idea to consider a warm up at a ski resort. There are number of ski resorts in close proximity of the heli-operators in British Columbia, some closer than others but since our office is located in the sight of Silver Star Mountain Resort it makes sense we begin with them.
Located 22km (14 miles) from Vernon, 65 km (40 miles) from Kelowna Airport at an elevation of 1609 m (5,280 ft) is British Columbia’s third largest ski area, with over 3,282 skiable acres. Varied terrain attracts every kind of skier and with four distinct mountain faces and 132 runs. The progressive terrain is perfect for learning. In addition to fun on the slopes there are 18 food and beverage options in the village.
Accommodation on SSM couldn’t be easier to secure. Our partner Silver Star Stays is a personalized reservation service for Silver Star Mountain. Choose from over 70 rental options ranging from affordable studios to deluxe 7 bedroom mountain homes.
There was a time that we would see a definite break in reservations but the last few years have seen an increase in early reservations, in both skiing and heliskiing. Don’t be disappointed, let’s start planning NOW!
