Sovereign 2 SilverStar Ski Marathon

April 6th and 7th


Great snow!

We’ve been asked by a few of you about our snow. We get it; it’s been a challenging snow year

in most of North America. A recent warming trend consolidated our base, we’ve had over 50cm

of snow since then, and the conditions are amazing. All trails are open, with beautiful tracks and

corduroy. Even though we cannot fully predict the weather, we normally have a LOT of

snow throughout March and April and into May (and sometimes June!). So we fully anticipate

that all will be well for the event.


Incredible Silent Auction donations

With thanks to our generous sponsors, we already have items valued over $15,000, including a

VO2 Master Portable Analyzer, a package for two with flights and accommodation to the Yukon

Ski Lodge, and a Fischer Speedmax ski package. Wow!


Movie Night at the S2S! New in 2024!

We’re hosting the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival this year on the Saturday

evening just to add to the excitement of the Sovereign 2 SilverStar Ski Marathon. Only $25,

starts at 6:30pm, and at the NATC in SilverStar Village. We think tickets may go quickly, so buy

your ticket now!


Pacific Northwest Loppet Series – Point Standings!

This amazing series is worth putting on your radar! Two events done and two to go, including

S2S as the finale! Check out details of the series and current point standings by clicking the link.


Register now before a price increase on February 25th (midnight Pacific Time). Now is a great

time to book lodging too! And if you register 8 or more skiers, contact
