Silver Star Work Party, BBQ & Ride

9:00am Sunday October 16

Starting with a safety meeting at 9:00am sharp at the Vernon Snowmobile Association snowmobile parking lot in Silver Star Provincial Park, there is a morning work party to stack firewood and clean up around the old chalet site, a lunch BBQ then a guided ride of the snowmobile/ATV trails in the Trinity Ricardo area.

RSVP my email to [email protected] by 5:00pm Friday October 14 if attending so we have food for everyone.

WORK – The morning work party will consist of piling firewood that was previously in the snowmobile chalet as well as raking up small wood pieces left from the demolition of the chalet. Please bring a rake or shovel to help with the cleanup.

RIDE – The ride is a beginner level ride with a handful of rain ruts and mud puddles that are near intermediate level difficulty. A single tank of fuel will be ample for the day, remember to pack clothes for all conditions as Silver Star is at 1700+ metres elevation and the weather can change fast.

There are 3 outhouses along the ride route, we expect to be done and back at the snowmobile parking lot by 4:00pm at the latest.

Directions: The turnoff to Silver Star Provincial Park is 18.5kms from the Butcher Boys intersection of Pleasant Valley Road and Silver Star Rd, turn left onto Sovereign Lake Road, drive 2km then turn right and follow the road to the upper snowmobile parking lot where you can unload your ATV.
