WELCOME TO THE NATIONS LARGEST CROSS COUNTRY SKI CLUB.

In the 1930s, our ski pioneers recognized the value of the Silver Star area. Located in  an outstanding natural environment with an abundance of dry snowfall the joint trail networks of Sovereign Lake Nordic Club and Silver Star Mountain Resort providing over 105km of daily groomed trails, making it the largest continuously groomed network of cross country ski trails in Canada.  High elevation and mild winter temperatures provide a perfect recreation area to explore. World-class grooming and outstanding early and late season ski conditions continue to provide some of the best cross country skiing in the world.

SLNC is dedicated to the promotion of cross country skiing as an inclusive lifelong activity for all ages and abilities. Committed to the provision of high quality facilities, programs and services, the SLNC operates a world-class cross country ski venue located within Silver Star Provincial Park.
