Very Canadian, Silver Star is an authentic ski resort with colourful buildings, easy beginner slopes and super-challenging steeps.

With a huge variety of terrain, Silver Star ski holidays are great for all abilities. A two-sided resort, the south face has easy skiing for beginners and improvers, while the back-side has steep chutes and tree runs - the double blacks from the top of the Powder Gulch Express are particularly testing.

In Silver Star village, colourful buildings cluster around a ski-through main street. Compact and traffic-free, it’s a great place for families, and the excellent Star Kids Centre takes children from 18 months.

There’s more going here than first meets the eye, with some great local gems such as Bugaboos Bakery Café and Mogul's Sports Bar. The Knoll area is a lovely place for an evening stroll, and several off-piste activities are included on your lift pass, such as cross-country skiing and tubing.

For longer stays or a BC ski safari, Silver Star makes a good combination with Big White and Sun Peaks.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

A hidden gem. Fantastic skiing on a variety of pistes. Ski in ski out. Plenty of locals to chat to on the chairlifts. A much quieter resort than Whistler. No lift queues, even on sunny weekends. Really enjoyed the wide variety of pistes and the fact that you could ski back to the resort very easily during the day. Ski hire was very good. The grooming was excellent and we benefited from low temperatures and fresh snow. Plenty of places to eat out and we particularly enjoyed Bugaboos cafe for the coffee and pastries, the Red Antler for burgers, and The Den for its nightly specials.

Quite like the resort. We’ve given up the double black diamonds so a bit limited.

Why We Love Spring Skiing

28th April 2017 - Craig Charley

We love spring skiing. In fact, we love it so much that 17 of us (nearly three quarters of our team) have been skiing in March or April this season. Everyone has their own reasons for loving spring, from a deep snow base and fresh powder to the high potential for bluebird days. In our final snow...
