Coronavirus: SilverStar makes ‘difficult decision’ to suspend operations

SilverStar Mountain Resort announced late Saturday night that it would be suspending operations for just over a week due to the coronavirus pandemic.

That means none of the resorts ski lifts, restaurants or shops will be operating, effective Sunday and running through March 22.
