SilverStar Bike Park Official 2013 Opening: June 27th (Bonus weekend June 22/23rd)
The Bike Park is branching out a little bit this summer with the creation/reopening of a XC trail network south of the village located near our Nordic trail area. The goal is to have 2 loops developed for this summer and more building throughout the summer and in the future.
A NEW bike park trail is going to be started this summer as well. It’s a new blue trail called Jedi Mind Tricks, and it sounds like a lot of flowy fun.
This summer the Silver Style Slopestyle, the marquee event of the Freeride Festival August 30-September 1, is a Bronze-Level FMBA event, drawing more athletes and bigger crowds.
The BC Cup Series race July 27 & 28 has been awarded the BC Championships designation so you can expect that race weekend to be even bigger and better and once again hosted by the Director Of Good Times: Brett Tippie.
At the Summer Wine Festival August 9 & 10 you can expect wine masters dinners, seminars and of course the flagship event of the festival the outdoor tasting – The Mile High Wine Tasting with roughly 30 different wineries pouring in the village.
Matt Hunter and Thomas Vanderham are returning to host the Elevate Mtn Bike Camp July 1-5th, Ryan Leech will host his Ride and Reach camp Aug 10th. Also hosting camps are Dirt Series Women’s Camps and Base MTB bike camps.
