Vernon and Whistler (BC), Canada – SilverStar My1Pass season passholders are receiving an unexpected and welcome perk with a recently announced partnership between SilverStar Mountain Resort and Whistler Blackcomb.
The new benefit gets SilverStar winter 2015-16 alpine season passholders a 25 per cent discount on single-day and multi-day tickets at Whistler Blackcomb with no blackout dates. In addition, Okanagan skiers will get the chance to stretch their ski season well into late May 2016 with Whistler Blackcomb’s extended spring skiing.
“We are continuously looking for new and exciting ways to add value for our season passholders,” says Dave Brownlie, President and CEO at Whistler Blackcomb. “We look forward to welcoming SilverStar passholders this winter so that they can come and experience what skiing and riding in Whistler is all about.”
Connecting with Whistler Blackcomb is the latest in a series of new benefits for SilverStar loyalists. This year, the mountain’s 3,282 acres of skiable terrain was enhanced with a new Race Center and more than 90 acres of additional expert and intermediate-level tree skiing.
“We’re thrilled to offer this great added value to our passholders,” said Ken Derpak, SilverStar’s managing director. “Partnering with Whistler Blackcomb in their 50th anniversary year is really exciting for us and a fantastic value-add for our guests.”
SilverStar’s season passholders also receive access to 39 free ski days at Powder Alliance member resorts, a collection of 14 ski resorts across North America. SilverStar was the first Canadian resort to achieve membership in the Powder Alliance. New for this season, Whitewater in Nelson, B.C. joined the Alliance.
“Last Chance” pricing on SilverStar winter season passes is available until October 31. The mountain is anticipating an alpine opening on November 26, with the Nordic trails opening earlier on November 12.
