Ease of Access

Your luxury ski holiday to Silver Star features a charming mid-mountain village of multi-coloured buildings in a Victorian style with ski-in/ski-out accommodation, shops, restaurants and bars.

While the village is modest in size, there is a diverse range of terrain on over 3,200 acres of mainly tree-lined slopes; Silver Star is now BC's third largest ski area. For 2015-16, the resort developed over 130 acres of new terrain, including new gladed ski terrain in both Putnam Creek and Silver Woods. For those who love Silver Star’s beautifully groomed runs, two new Pisten Bully groomers were purchased to bring the grooming fleet up to nine machines, including two winch cats.

The main ski area around the village has some fabulous long, wide groomed trails ideal for novices and intermediates. Putnam Creek also has good cruising, but there is also plenty of challenging terrain too in Silver Star ski resort, with 1,900 acres of black and double black diamond runs and some of the best moguls anywhere. Silver Star ski resort also has a progressive terrain park, kiddie terrain park and a snow-cross course, as well as a new race centre on Cloud 9. There’s the added bonus of night skiing too, on Friday and Saturday until 8.30pm on your Silver Star ski holiday. You can even take to the skies and the untracked powder, flying from the resort base, with Eagle Pass Heli-skiing.

Accommodation in resort on your ski holiday to Silver Star ranges from luxurious lodges to Victorian styled vacation homes, as well as fabulous slopeside condos and hotels.

The vibrantly coloured buildings and relaxed atmosphere make the village, in a lovely setting amongst the trees, one of the prettiest in Canada. Unique bars, such as the lively Saloon, restaurants serving everything from tapas to steaks, and small selection of shops complete the pedestrian-only village.

If you or the family still have any energy after a busy day on the slopes, there is tubing, snowmobiling (for children and adults), fat biking and snowshoeing available. More relaxing is the choice of a sleigh ride, which weaves through snow-covered trees to a log cabin for dinner.

Another great fun family activity is the Pinheads Bowling Alley, just steps from Brewers Pond – a natural outdoor skating pond that is ideal for a classic Canadian game of hockey or your attempt at a triple axel.

A Silver Star ski holiday also has some of Canada’s best cross-country skiing on its many groomed, Nordic runs, which combine with the trails of the nearby Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre to offer over 105km of daily groomed trails.

There is also an indoor climbing wall, the Ousia Day Spa, a fitness centre and plenty of family events including movie nights, bingo and even fireworks for those looking for things to do away from the slopes.

The resort also provides a FREE wi-fi network available throughout the village.
