Silver Star Mountain Resort’s newest lift is ready for action after 14 months of construction.
The gondola will officially be opened Saturday at a public event from 11 am to 4 pm.
It takes riders on a scenic trip from the village to the summit in under five minutes.
“The gondola cabins will provide a 360-degree spectacular view on both the uphill and downhill trips,” says Ken Derpak, SilverStar Mountain Resort Managing Director. “We are excited for our guests’ experiences to be significantly enhanced starting this weekend.”
The public is invited to ride the gondola for no charge Saturday with a Beach Party on the Mountain. There will also be a free community BBQ and complimentary activities for the whole family, including pony rides, a bouncy castle, entertainment and more.
Okanagan’s Andrew Johns will be playing live music in the village, and guests can enjoy the sunshine and fresh air in the beverage garden.
The Gondola grand opening will begin at 11 am with speeches.
