The Snowshoe Tours On Silver Star Have Started!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas up at Silver Star. There’s so much snow decorating the forest that the full schedule of Snowshoe Tours on Silver Star have started. Christmas parties are in full swing and gift certificates are filling stockings as more people realise the fun and glorious adventure of snowshoeing through the forest.
Snowshoes are popular gift items this Christmas as snowshoeing’s the fastest growing winter activity. Silver Star’s snowshoe tours are easy, fun and informative backcountry style adventures in the comfort and safety of the resort.
Each tour includes snowshoes or participants can bring their own for a learn-as-you-go lesson with tips and hints for enjoyable winter outings. Within moments, you’re deep in the forest having a ball with family, old friends or new! The new smaller, lightweight snowshoes with gripping crampons enables a normal walking stride. Joining a tour is the safest, most interesting and fun way to discover the joys of snowshoeing.
Silver Star’s snowshoe guide naturalist , Roseanne Van Ee, received a Best Tour Guide finalist in Okanagan Life’s “Best Of 2012” awards. Van Ee says, “We’re having a blast discovering the natural wonders of winter. Photos and videos on facebook.com/outdoordiscoveries allow people to follow for updates, wildlife sightings and adventure
highlights. Besides all the glitter there’s stories about knocked out birds, hares with cigarettes and more!” “New this year,” Van Ee announces, “will be monthly Full Moon Parties starting Dec. 28. Details will be announced soon.”
There’s still spaces available for the annually sold-out New Year’s Eve celebration, The Wild Horseman’s Adventure, and gift certificates are available by calling Valhalla Pure on Silver Star at 250-558-4292.
