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.

Call 01273 224060 for advice from our ski specialists.

A great resort for intermediate skiers. Lots of runs which are well groomed and were never busy. Even on Christmas Eve, which was the busiest day, we didn't have to queue for longer than 10 minutes at any chair lift. It snowed a bit most days with 17cm over one 24 hour period which meant we had great conditions for skiing.

Quite a small village but it had everything we needed. Restaurants we tried were excellent. Skiing was brilliant.

It was a little disappointing for us as it was a little too quiet with not a large amount of things to do. Very friendly people though and all very helpful.
