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.

Also great terrain, and very pretty - I especially liked the glade skiing in Deer Park, Gopher Glades and Spruce Meadows. Very pretty, compact resort centre with a reasonable choice of places to eat and drink in the evening - I especially liked The Den and the Bulldog.

Amazing place to ski. Lots of greens, blacks, blues. Amazing places to eat and all are accessible. Accommodation was incredible. All there own snow, they do not snow make - makes a massive difference! Ice skating and Tubing is included in your lift pass.
