Downhill Trails Description

Silver Star is incredibly proud to be one of the most progressive bike parks in the industry.

What that means is that we have built our park on the concept of starting out as a new rider and being able to build your skills and confidence and safely progress through our trail system based on a ladder concept for the skill required for each trail. Starting on Challenger (green) and moving your way up to blues and then blacks.

We also have high end trails that keep even the best riders entertained with trails like Pipe Dream, Downtown and Pro Star.

Skills Areas

A Beginner Skills Area - Located at the Star Kids Centre near Rentals in the village. There are a number of ramps and skinny wood features set up to practice your balance skills before heading out on the trails. 

The Vault - This progressive skills area and jump park is loads of fun. We are listening to our riders and there will be ongoing improvements each year.  Currently there is 3 jump lines that vary in size, small wooden drops and some wooden skinnies and boxes to practice on.  Every rider can improve their skills; Rock Star or Challenger will get you there. 

Multi-use and Green Bike Trails

Challenger - This is our favourite beginner trail on the mountain and a great place to hone your skills.  This is a challenging green trail with blue sections that braid off of the main trail for 100-200m and then join back up with the green trail. Test your skills and try out the blue sections where you'll find small jumps, rollers, low log rides and beginner berms, or stay on the green and cruise back down to the Comet Express.
