SilverStar Mountain will open for cross-country skiing this weekend.

The ski lifts, however, won’t be open yet, so it could be a long climb to get to the trails. Skiing is therefore only recommended for intermediate and advanced skiers this weekend.

“At this time, we will only be opening for the weekend,” said Chantelle Deacon, media relations manager, “but there is a possibility we will stay open for cross-country next week, weather depending. It looks like there is lots of snow in the forecast, so we are very hopeful that we will be able to stay open.”

SilverStar, near Vernon, plans to open Nov. 28 for downhill skiing.
