About Silver Star Bike Park
“Silver Star Bike Park is stoked to host another big BC Cup race this summer. The bike park has a long history of hosting DH races, dating back to the early 1990’s. The current course, run on Dag’s Downhill, is a racers dream trail. It’s packed with lots of tight turns, rock gardens, and fast and tight treed sections that test the riders skills. There’s a reason why Silver Star Bike Park is one of the most popular rides in B.C. It’s not only the trails but it’s also only an hour from Kelowna, located in the sunny Okanagan. It’s also an easy visit off of Highway 1 from Vancouver or Alberta via Highway 97A or C. Every BC Cup racer receives 10% off select accommodation at the resort, which is on sale now. Call 1-800-663-4431 or email info@skisilverstar.com to find out about the options and let them know you are racing the Silver Star BC Cup."
