    About Silver Star, BC

    What was originally a local’s ski hill back in the 1960’s, SilverStar Mountain Resort has evolved into British Columbia's 3rd largest resort with more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain and a charming and vibrant village equipped to entertain locals and visitors alike. Because it lacks international fame, unlike some other Canadian ski resorts, you won’t find intimidating crowds or never-ending lift lines. Located high above British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, SilverStar is renowned for its light, dry snow, of which it sees an average of 23 feet annually. Its 132 runs spread across three mountain faces with varied terrain including long groomed cruisers, steep powder-filled chutes on its famous back side (Putnam Creek), and a Monster Terrain Park accommodates all levels of skiers and riders. Add that to its quaint and colorful resort village and SilverStar has become one of Canada’s favorite family resorts.

    SilverStar is also a renowned cross-country skiing destination; in fact, together with its neighbor Sovereign Lake Nordic Center SilverStar is Canada's largest daily groomed cross-country trail system. Many national teams, including Canada’s and the U.S.’, will train on the area’s 93-plus miles of trails.

    When the lifts stop running, or your legs just can’t take any more fresh powder, simply ski back to your doorstep—all accommodations in the village are ski-in, ski-out. Enjoy a nice soak in a private hot tub overlooking the Monashee mountain range or head into the village, which offers 18 dining, bar and entertainment options. Reminiscent of an early 1900’s mining town, the bars, restaurants and shops that line Main Street are filled with long-time residents and local characters who help give SilverStar its down-to-earth, homey feel.

    Despite being a lesser-known mountain resort, SilverStar is actually quite accessible. The resort is just 12 miles from Vernon, B.C., and Kelowna Airport (YLW) is a mere 30 minutes from there, so you have plenty of options for ground transportation or rental cars.
