It’s March and that means the madness on the slopes begins. And at SilverStar Mountain Resort, the lineup of activities and events is, well… earth-shaking. This is the first tremor of the SilverStar SEISMIC Spring Mountain Festival 10-day event, but expect an annual repeat of the collaboration of sport, music, art, food and prizes in years to come. Trust me, this festival will bounce off the Richter scale!
SilverStar will vibrate for 10 days in March
SilverStar is known for fantastic powder stashes on big runs, dotted with snow ghosts rising from a village primed to entertain guests with après ski activities. But starting now, March will be the month to hold on tight. The first annual SEISMIC Spring Mountain Festival is about to shake the village.
For 10 days straight, the resort will be a collaboration of exciting events, sports, activities and music.
The signature sporting events will be a big draw for skiers and boarders. You can either attend and watch the pros or take part. The festival kicks off with a huge draw. The Monster Energy Boarderstyle will shake the opening weekend with both the event and the usual legendary “Monster After Party” with a DJ rocking the stage in The Red Antler.
Every day has events to draw the crowds including:
SilverStar’s first ever “Drop Competition” brought to you by Clif. Go ahead and enter, huck yourself off a big drop and fly with style into “the pit.”
The Smith Optics Rail Jam at SEISMIC will be the finale of the winter series and tons of cash and prizes are on the line. Sign on to strut your stuff in the terrain park.
Bring your bike and your nerves of steel for the return of Frost Bike. Only the bravest will hurl themselves onto the weaving track of berms bumps and jumps of the boarder track. Fastest time wins.
For the calmer crowd, those who would rather tremor instead of shake – there are arts and culinary events including:
Winterland – the food and music weekend that is paired with local beer, wine, cider and spirits.
Culture & Cocktails – an intimate evening of some of the Okanagan’s best artist, custom cocktails and food.
Wait… that’s not all. Coors Light is dialing up the seismometer with a line-up of music at its beer garden every day of the festival. Check the schedule to find out when your favourite Okanagan artists are playing and to find out when the headliners are up.
Every day will feature vendors in the village, SEISMIC Games with daily challenges and prizes, sport demos and nightly fireworks,
With a schedule like this… it looks like SilverStar is the epicentre of spring festivals.
