Raid the North
Silver Star Mountain Resort, British Columbia
August 20 - 22, 2004


After a year of rugged mountain races in Western Canada, Frontier Adventure Racing is switching gears to the splendour and variety of the North Okanagan. Silver Star Mountain Resort, a colourful fairytale ski village nestled in the Monashees above Vernon, BC, opens their doors to our western 2004 Raid the North event.

About Silver Star Mountain Resort and the Vernon Region:

In summer, Silver Star Mountain Resort blossoms into an unparalleled array of greenery and wildflowers. Just minutes out of Vernon, BC, and the warm waters of Lake Okanagan, Silver Star's colourful village welcomes outdoor enthusiasts all year around. Cross-Country & Downhill skiing, Snowboarding, and Snowshoeing in the winter and Hiking, Mountain Biking, Rafting, and Horseback Riding in the summer makes Silver Star the perfect destination.

With village accommodation ranging from a hostel to a five-star hotel, and featuring facilities such as a high-altitude training centre and conference center, Silver Star is everything we could hope for in a host site for Raid the North. The Silver Star village sits at 6280 feet, and is surrounded by three tempting lakes - Okanagan Lake, Swan Lake and Kalamalka Lake (lake of many colours). The Vernon region is very rich in variety of terrain and ecology, with landscapes that vary from open, semi-arid grasslands to high elevation sub-alpine meadows, to dark, moist temperate rainforests, often only a few kilometres apart!
