Long Description:
In 1938, Carl Wylie started the Silver Star Ski Club. Two years later it became the Silver Star Provincial Park.

It now has over 50 km of manicured cross county trails and 14 km of snowshoe trails.

All the murals are well done paying tribute to the artist's talent and creativity for any passersby to enjoy.

The murals are numbered and we will showcase
# 20 – Sovereign Lake

Sovereign Lake

3205 32nd Street

In 1939, the City of Vernon donated a log cabin to a local cross country ski club on Vernon Lake. Pictured at the cabin are Carl Wylie and his wife Flora founders of the club. Vernon Lake was later renamed Sovereign Lake after good citizen and avid skier Bishop Art Sovereign. The ski area has now become a world class destination.

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
