Ken Derpak is Managing Director of Silver Star Mountain Resort.  Ken spoke to the Kal Rotary members about the future expansion plans at the resort.  Showing an aerial view of the mountain, he pointed out the areas where they want to do new ski runs, some on the back side of the mountain.  New lifts would need to be installed for these runs, and some of those could come from the area where they are installing a new gondola, designed to take passengers from the village to the summit.

Ken also talked about the idea of a restaurant at the summit, possibly an eighteen hole golf course and how they could accommodate the increase in visitors and traffic.  Any question you may have about the year round activities at the resort can be answered at their website -
