Silver Star Mountain Bike Park Overview
Silver Star Bike Park is building a reputation as THE place to ride in Canada with the guidance of bike park director Cam Sorensen. Sorensen, the "Godfather of mountain biking" at Silver Star, has built a park that is based on progression. At Silver Star you'll find everything from beginner trails to expert runs filled with berms, table tops and a ton of wooden features.
A signature feature of Silver Star Bike Park is that all the runs are top to bottom distinct trails instead of short pieces of trail that intersect logging roads.
The Comet Six Pack Express is Canada’s largest mountain bike lift, taking bikers to 1,600 vertical feet of great riding terrain. The high-speed detachable lift is fitted with roll-on bike carriers and has a ride-time to the top of less than eight minutes.
