Snowshoeing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Snowshoeing is very popular at Silver Star Mountain Resort. It offers a change of pace for downhill skiers and snowboarders and a good alternative for people who aren't interested in sliding and gliding. Silver Star offers guided snowshoeing programs that include off-trail adventures in a controlled environment.
Excellent trail systems at the adjacent Sovereign Lake Nordic Club give beginners a sense of security, while old hands find enough variety to keep things interesting.
