Great Mountain -- So Many Things to Do!

This mountain rocks! It has everything you could want. Having skiied a lot of places I am quite impressed with this mountain. Was visiting family in Vernon and went skiing 3 or the 5 days I was there. The snow was consistently good front and back even when there was no new snow. The grooming team on this mountain does an amazing job. We got one powder day and that was so epic! I sated on the backside day - loved the steep runs and fresh powder.

I love that your ticket includes everything the mountain has to offer (tubing/cross-country/ice skating). LOVE that concept. Tubing was super fun and crazy fast and ice skating/family game of hockey on Christmas evening was great. We were able to watch the "torch run" and fireworks on the mountain - so cool! The village is big enough but small at the same time - I loved it. Can't wait to come back and do some more skiing!


"Best Little Big Canadian Ski Resort"

This is a BIG/little village. All you need without the crowds or hustle and bustle. A perfect and quaint village delivering ample eating and drinking options to cater from high end at the Silver Grill to a takeaway sausage roll from Bugaboos. Shoppers are kept happy with a nice variety of stores from sweets and toys for the little ones, to big boy toys at Skidazzle.

The mountain itself offers exceptional skiing for all levels with long gentle runs complimented with plenty of vertical chutes for the double black skiers and in between it's run after run of blue and blue/black runs that are wide and wonderful. Even in peak Christmas season the mountain didn't ever seem crowded, I never had a lift queue or felt like I had anyone on top me. No ice either, just lovely light fluffy snow, with an excellent grooming program which changed regularly to ensure you were never bored with the same runs....

Then of course there is the snow.... this is the real deal. No man-made here, just loads and loads of light white crunching under foot or first track powder skiing at its finest. Oh did I mention there are sleigh rides, skidoo riding, an ice rink, ice hockey, ten-pin bowling, nordic ski tracks, snowshoe tracks and an excellent downhill, snowboard and cross country ski coaching clinic all available in the one resort? 

I LOVE THIS PLACE. The staff on the mountain from the long suffering lifties and groomers, to the instructors, mountain hosts and customer service staff are all second-to-none. Soo helpful, patient and friendly

Silver Star has changed my skiing and my attitude towards Skiiing......I cant wait to get back there not just for the snow, the skiing, the village or the runs, but just to soak up the general atmosphere that only comes from honesty and passion. SILVER STAR BY NAME GOLD STAR IN EVERY WAY.


“First time skiing”

I'm 38 years old and had never skied before.. but I'm now officially hooked. Our two hour lesson with Morgan was a perfect introduction to the sport. The Silverstar snow school was very helpful in booking the lesson and their learning facilities are excellent, very beginner-friendly. I was nervous at first but Morgan was excellent at communicating and was very effective at building my confidence with my skis quickly. We were riding up the "magic carpet" in no time, and were skiing totally on our own down the practice hill within the first 30 minutes!

After a two hour lesson today, I feel like I've learned a new sport, I cannot wait to get back out there. Thanks Morgan and Silverstar for an excellent day on the slopes! Time to start shopping for skis...
