“Awesome Snowshoe Excursion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

What a great winter experience!! Roseanne is a wonderful, informative and experienced guide. We left the Silverstar Village at 6ish and were led on an adventure through moonlit, untouched snow, star filled skies above and a quiet shuffle of snowshoes. It was absolutely awesome. We were worried about not being fit enough, but we found it quite easy actually. After snowshoeing for about 2 hours, we arrive at a kerosene lamp lit cabin. There is a dining room that fits about 40 people, and its plenty warm to ward off any chills from spending the last two hours tromping through the snow. We enjoyed a cup of apple cider and hot chocolate. The meal was delicious! Their home made salsa that they serve with chips as an appy is scrumptious. We both ordered ribs and devoured them. The other couple on our tour also enjoyed their meal very much. After dessert we bundled up again and boarded the sleigh outside, which took us back to the village. Bandit (the Wild Horsemans sidekick) was a humorous addition to the mix, he had us entertained at the cabin, playing fetch with snowballs and on the sleigh. If you want an awesome snowshoe excursion this is it!!!!

Thanks so much for your kind and informative review. So glad you had a wonderful time.
By the way, in case anyone is wondering, Bandit is an energetic collie dog.
Cheers,
Roseanne

“Great, small-group tours at Silver Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Roseanne runs an excellent business that is operated year round. In the winter, join her for snowshoe tours and in the spring/summer for wildflower tours on Silver Star Mountain. The tours are kept to a small group so you have full access to Roseanne who will help you if you are a new snowshoer or hiker. She will also share the local history and answer any of your questions. She operates out of The Village Ski Shop at Silver Star, where you can also rent snowshoes if you need them. A great way to see the mountain for the first time, or to give snowshoeing or hiking a try.

Thanks svQuickStar for your kind review.
New this winter; the Snowshoe Tours are run out of Guest Services 250-558-6019 (not Village Ski Shop). We have snowshoes or people can bring their own. All the details are on Silver Star's website or on my own OutdoorDiscoveries website.
These websites are the best places to get details on booking for the Summer Tours, too.
