    Paradise found awaits at Silver Star

    Located a short 20-minute drive from Vernon, the resort boasts some of the Okanagans most stunning, and accessible scenic views. The hiking season opens June 29 as the Summit Chairlift runs from noon until 4 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until September 9. Hikers can also access the Comet

    Express Six-Pack which runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p/m/ The hike to the Comet takes about 20 minutes before being able to make it to the summit. Unlike the Summit Chairlift ride, hikers cannot ride the chair back down. Thats hardly a worry as Silver Stars stunning views of the Monashee mountains, mixed

    with its wide array of wildflowers and wildlife are a photographers dream come true. For those looking for some insight into their surroundings, a guided tour with Outdoor Discoveries, let by award-winning naturalist Roseanne Van Ee, is a definite must. Outdoor discoveries offers a range of tours from Informative Bears and Berries to the Ghosts of Silver Star. For bookings contact Van Ee at 250-545-7446 or online at outdoordiscoveries.comMany guests simply enjoy a quick stroll through the village. Whether its lunch at The Saloon or a beer on the patio of the Bulldog, Silver Stars quaint Victo-rian village is always a relaxing atmosphere. Perhaps the most unique way to

    discover the mountain is onhorseback. Guests can saddle-upand ride through the forest on aguided tour. The resort evenboasts custom tours with mealsprepared for groups at the WildHorsemans Cabin.

    For more information on tickets,or to book tours, visit the SkiDazzle summer ticket office,located in the heart of the villageor by calling 250-558-6023 oremail tickets@skisilverstar.com
