Silverstar Ski Resort


SilverStar Overview:
Inspired by a typical nineteenth century British Columbian mining town era with Victorian architecture, this ski town is a true winter wonderland. Brightly coloured store fronts and boarded sidewalks provide a unique ambiance that radiates fun, enthusiasm and excitement for the whole family. Guests are attracted to the warmth and safety of the town where service and friendliness are as honoured as the values of a time gone by. It’s the size of your smile that counts at SilverStar!



Accommodation Overview:
SilverStar has a variety of accommodation options to suit most styles of ski holiday and most budgets. There is a selection of hotels, as well as apartments (or condo's as they say in North America) and houses. A large amount of the accommodation in SilverStar offers a ski-in, ski-out location or close too it. Families tend to stay as close to the village as possible for easy access to ski school and child care, but its also a great spot to explore restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.

Mountain Information:
There's no snow-making at Silver Star - it's all 100% natural snow! Over 7m of the Okanagan’s light dry powder snow falls on the slopes of Silver Star every year. The comfortable daytime temperatures average -3 C (27 F), which is cold enough to keep the snow light and fluffy, yet perfect for skiing, riding, cross country skiing and winter activities.

There's a variety of terrain featuring 115 Runs & Canada’s best backside. There are the immaculately groomed cruisers of Vance Creek, playful gladed areas in Silver Woods and the challenging steeps of the infamous Putnam Creek. It's sure to delight skiers and boarders of all ability and adrenaline levels!

Getting Around:
SilverStar Village is a colourful little pedestrian village, the centre is ski-in ski-out and everything is only a short walk so most people get around on foot once they arrive. If you are staying a little further out, shuttle services are available.



Things to do in SilverStar:
Most visitors head to SilverStar for the epic terrain, but there are some great family-friendly mountain activities off the slopes as well. Partake in carnival nights, marvel at fireworks, watch movies, go ten-pin bowling, relax in front of a bonfire, or enjoy live entertainment. There are also all your regular winter activities such as tubing, ice-skating, and snowmobiles. For a different afternoon rent some Fat Bikes and take them for a run around the X Country trails.



Best Après in SilverStar:
Après-ski has a more relaxed pace at SilverStar, this can be a pro or con depending on your expectations! Long John’s is your best bet for aès or you can have a few cheeky beers one of the pubs.



Best Restaurants in SilverStar:
Dining is affordable compared to larger ski resorts and generally pub-style meals are the main option. For fine dining you can head to The Silver Grill, pair dinner with local wines. The Den is a great option for the whole family or grab something from HB Pizza.

You cannot visit SilverStar without getting a Hot Chocolate and Cinnamon Bun from Bugaboos Bakery. If you do book a self-contained apartment or house, it’s a great option to get supplies and eat in!
