Weather & Webcams

The Vernon Snowmobile Association trails are neighboured by Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre trails to the west and Silver Star Mountain Resort to the east. The snowmobile trails in Silver Star Provincial Park range in elevation from 1550 to 1850m and the trails in the Trinity Ricardo area (adjoining to the north of Silver Star Provincial Park) range in elevation from 1300 to 1700m.

The summit of Silver Star Mountain is 1915m and the Sovereign Lake webcams are at 1650m elevation so provide a good reference for conditions on the VSA trails.
