Feature Local Artist Raffaella Vaz

Originally from the Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy, Raffaella Vaz has snowboarded her way around the world finally arriving in the stunning B.C. Mountains. 

Raffaella, an accomplished Snowboard Coach, is currently working for the Silver Star Freestyle Club and delivers ‘Girls in Sports’ programs in the Okanagan area. .

Diagnosed in 2019 with life-threatening Lung and heart disease, Raffaella produced the original custom Village scene canvas for SilverStar Resort only days before flying to Toronto for her life saving surgery.

The SilverStar Mountain Museum is a partnership between SilverStar Mountain Resort, Vernon and District Museum, and the SilverStar Dreamweavers Society.

A satellite of the Vernon District Museum, the SilverStar Mountain Museum intends to preserve artifacts and stories from the past about the people and events on the mountain. The history of human activity on the mountain goes back several hundred years and includes First Nations use, mining and forestry activities, as well as the recreational use of recent years.
