Canada snow lovers, get excited, if you ski or snowboard at Sun Peaks or SilverStar then life just got a whole lot better. 
 
Sun Peaks Resort and SilverStar Mountain Resort have announced a new season pass holder reciprocal program that provides enhanced access to both summer and winter at two of the leading Interior British Columbia destinations.

All winter alpine season pass holders from each destination receive two free days skiing or snowboarding at the affiliated resort and then 25 per cent off lift tickets for the remainder of each season. Plus all summer bike park season pass holders from each resort will receive one free day mountain biking at the other respective bike park.

 “Providing more value and opening up new experiences for our season pass holders is a key benefit of this exciting new initiative with our friends at SilverStar,” says Aidan Kelly, Chief Marketing Officer at Sun Peaks Resort.
 
Both resorts are world-class destinations that provide some of the largest and most diverse ski terrains in the industry, with Sun Peaks being Canada’s second largest ski area and SilverStar boasting British Columbia’s third largest ski area. Combined, the resorts have 7,552 acres of skiable terrain.
 
When the snow melts, Sun Peaks and SilverStar have the leading bike parks in the interior of British Columbia. This summer, Sun Peaks is celebrating it’s 20thanniversary of bike park operations while SilverStar is well known as one of the most progressive bike parks in the entire industry.
 
“Creating a program that provides access in both winter and summer seasons for respective pass holders will help showcase the calibre of product available in our region,” says Ian Jenkins, Director of Sales and Marketing at SilverStar Mountain Resort.
 
The new program will apply to the summer 2019 and winter 2019/20 seasons. Summer passes are currently on sale for both destinations. Winter passes are now available for Sun Peaks and will go on sale for SilverStar as of June 15.
