Snowshoeing has become a favourite pastime for winter enthusiasts because you can get out and enjoy the outdoors completely at your own pace. It's low risk and the health benefits are great! Silver Star offers 16 kilometres of single track trails weaving in and around the forested area in lower cross country trails. The trails are of varying difficulty and are clearly marked with hand carved wooden signs and reflective markers so they may be used in the early evening. There are two trailheads providing access from the Village and Adventure Park areas.

Dinner Tours
