Support your mates during Aussie Day at SilverStar

SilverStar is hosting a series of events for Australia Day starting Jan. 24

There is no better time than this weekend to support your Aussie mates, as Jan. 26 marks Australia Day at SilverStar Mountain Resort.

Australia is currently battling hundreds of devastating bushfires that have killed 29 people and an estimated one billion animals since September.

To help the country recover, SilverStar is preparing to host three days of Aussie Pride celebrations starting today (Jan. 24), 5 p.m., at The Red Antler where Triple J 100 will be live streaming all night.

Then on Saturday, the Vernon Vipers will take to the ice at Kal Tire Place for an Aussie Day special game starting at 6 p.m.

SilverStar’s Australian staff and guests are invited to the game against the West Kelowna Warriors.

Up on the mountain Saturday, the Jump Jam series will get underway at the SilverStar Terrain Park.

Sunday will be Australia Day, as Aussies will brave the cold and ride in pride, dressed only in swimwear, for the annual Bikini Run, a hilariously good time as skiers take to the mountain donning speedos or boardies in what is forecast to be a balmy 2 Celsius.

Recently, SilverStar held an event in support of raising funds for Australia’s wildfire-ravaged country — the Wildfire Sausage Sizzle and Raffle — which garnered more than $38,000.
