We are first timers to this resort, but we have snowboardered Whistler, and Big White in BC so this will be written from that perspective. We were blessed with sun and fresh snow during our 3 day stay, often simultaneously, but we will try remain objective. During a year when the West is struggling for snow, simply no issue here...

Stopped here as par of a Canadian biking road trip in September 2014. Of all the places we visited (Panorama, Kicking Horse, Sun Peaks, Whistler and Coast Gravity Park) I think Silver Star had the most hands down fun trails around. Nothing too lairy or absolute do or die, just point downhill and smile all day long. All the staff... More

WOW is pretty much how I can sum up my feelings about Silver Star's snowshoeing, tubing, and skating. My boyfriend was not looking forward to it, we brought our dog on the snowshoeing trails, I knew I would have fun with just experiencing snowshoeing for the first time, but when my super picky and unenthusiastic boyfriend said he really enjoyed...

Our family enjoyed three days of skiing at Silver Star in the midst of the great West Coast snow drought. In spite of warm day time temperatures and no new snow in more than a week, the runs that were groomed were in pretty good condition. Anything off the groomed track was unpleasant, but after new snow, it seemed like... More

Great range of runs from beginner to expert, groomers, steeps and bumps all on offer. We had a warm spell in late January that saw the cover in poor condition across BC, but from what I could tell Silver Star's held up about the best. Fantastic ski school, highly recommended. Village is small but has everything you need. Dining options... More

My husband & I first skied Silver Star Mountain in 1999, we immediately fell in love with the area, the mountains runs & the intimate village. In 2014 we returned with our children and had such a memorable visit we promised we'd return again. We did! We just returned from our families 3rd visit and loved every moment of it!... More

We rented a ski-in, ski-out cottage in this quaint resort. The skiing was marred by warm weather and lack of snow making the back side too icy and the front side too slushy. It was particularly bad on the weekend when many locals from Vernon and Kelowna came up to ski, making it far too crowded for the snow conditions... More

I love this resort for it's beautiful long well groomed downhill runs for all abilities, extensive cross country trails all of which are also well groomed. The resort is unpretentious and provides a very family friendly atmosphere. Even when skiing conditions are less than ideal the skiing is very satisfying.

Silver stat is a nice ski resort with small town centre. People are friendly and it feels personal, it's not as commercial as big white, the mountain is easier to navigate and there is less crowd. Unfortunately it has been unusally warm and the snow is not as dry as usual. Visibility is not ideal but not too bad near... More
