“A better choice than Big White”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

More sun, less fog and a more intimate feel than it's sister resort Big White. I opt for this mountain in the Okanagan over any other.

“Beautiful mountain and resort facilities, would most certainly return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Have been three times, uncrowded lift lines, very friendly locals (both on mtn & in Vernon). Have skied Switzerland, NZ, France & Australia since 1973 and this mtn compares well.
Lift prices were worth it. Houses and scenery are very picturesque and luxurious. Would def return.
Went with an Australian ski tour company, Ski Adventure Canada (Robilliard) which was dreadful! THAT company I would most certainly avoid and would provide a sound honest feedback on Tripadvisor if they were on it.
Apart from that, SS Mtn is truly well worth the visit.

A neat village with lots of accomodation. Lots of variety for the skiers. Open all year with summer activities as well.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We spend 10 days at Silver star with all our family (7 adults and 8 kids) and could not have picked a better ski station ! Silver star has a warm feel about it and does not feels overwhelming as the big ski resorts but still have plenty of great runs and amazing family activities ....
If you are a boarder like me you may want to do a trip to Big White for the day as Silver Star is not a boarders mountain - almost every run has a few flat spots that may test your patience...
Shops are great, Silver star has a great range of restaurants, a great SPA and the staff is very helpful and friendly ...
Tip - If you are going on a Spring Break closer to the end of the season try the ice skating at the pond as soon as you arrive as warmer conditions are unpredictable and they close it down for the season with not much notice

“Great Family Ski Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We were at the resort over Easter and it was great. Lots to do for the kids such as snow tubing and snowmobile rentals. Great spring skiing. The village is small with easy access to all things. The Dummy Downhill on the last day of the season was a lot of fun. Friendly staff.
