► KINSTRETCH
What is it? A movement enhancement system that develops maximum body control, flexibility and USABLE ranges of motion. The KINSTRETCH system is one born out of scientific research. All of the movements and training techniques have been selected based on a meticulous and rigorous investigation of evidence, conducted by physical conditioning and medical experts, as it pertains to body control, injury prevention, joint health, and physical longevity.

Unlike many training systems, KINSTRETCH practice is complete with a self-assessment system allowing you the ability to monitor your own body for dysfunction that may be causing pain, loss of performance, or that may be putting you at an increased chance of injury.

Benefits of a KINSTRETCH practice

  • Improved movement capacity
  • Improved flexibility, mobility and agility
  • Improved physical performance
  • Improved body awareness and control
  • Injury prevention/mitigation and management
  • Improved strength
  • Increased neurological function
  • Improved range of motion
  • Weight loss

SNOWSHOEING
Did you know that snowshoeing is a great cardio workout that helps build strength, agility & balance?  It also burns more calories than walking!  Explore our 1,200 acre backyard this winter by snowshoe.  Use your own or rent a pair from us! 

  • 1/2 day rentals - $10*
  • Full day rentals - $15*

Stop by the Fitness Centre to pick up your free trail map. A reminder to please stay off the VERY FRAGILE greens and tee boxes when snowshoeing/walking on the snow covered golf courses.

Snow Removal

If you're up at Predator Ridge, you'll know that we are now living in a true winter wonderland. We've had some pretty major snowfalls over the last few weeks which have brought some amazing conditions for snowshoeing throughout Predator Ridge and for skiing up at Silver Star and Big White.

With all of this beautiful white stuff, does bring a lot of work for our team to keep our streets safe for all residents and guests. We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation in helping us to maintain and keep our streets clear.

As a reminder, please avoid any street parking during the winter, especially on days when there is a snowfall. We have several streets within our community, which are tight for our snow removal equipment to get into and clear efficiently, especially when parked cars are a factor. Roads with homes on both sides of the road pose the most difficulty for example: Whitetail Crescent, Longspoon Drive and Mashie. We would also appreciate you letting your guests/tenants know so we can do everything we can to keep your roads clear of snow/ice.

2018 Carter Classic

Dear Friends and Fellow Skiers,

It’s that time of year again! The Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports (SSASS’s) yearly fundraising event called the Carter Classic is being held at SilverStar on Saturday February 24, 2018.

This fun race attracts many local teams of recreational skiers that "dress in costume" and participate in a match your time race followed by lunch and awards for best times and the best costumes.

Predator Ridge residents Sattu & Bernie Mahapatra and Bob & Lisa Dohnalek did us proud last year and will be representing our community as Team Predator for 2018.

Thank you “team” for volunteering and supporting this annual tradition! One of SSASS’s para-alpine athletes will be put on our team, so come on out and cheer on Team Predator on the sidelines followed by lunch and prizes in the auditorium of the National Altitude Training Centre. The race will be held on the “Over the Hill” run just below Main Street just after 9:00 am.

As always we really appreciate the support of our community. Funds raised by the volunteers at SSASS help us acquire the complicated equipment we use to guide our athletes down the mountain. From Sitskis to outriggers, harnesses and safety equipment, your donations go to a wonderful cause. Please connect with any of our team members or Bob Moore if you would like to make a donations. Tax receipts will be provided for donations of $20 or more.

Thank you again for your support!

Cheers,

Bob Moore
