VERNON - Skiing doesn’t get much cheaper than this.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is selling $5 lift tickets — the disclaimer being that it’s for the Summit Chair only — on Sunday, April 5.

It will be your last chance ever to ride the 48-year-old Summit Chair, which is set to be replaced by a new gondola in July.

Silver Star is asking people to make a minimum $5 donation for their day pass on the Summit Chair, with all proceeds going to the SPCA.

The last day of operations begins at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday and the last chair for the public will be at 2:45 p.m. At 3 p.m., a final ride is scheduled for Karl Earnst, the first paid employee at Silver Star Mountain Resort.
