Skiing in Silver Star
The light, champagne powder and the large varied ski terrain is what draws people to Silver Star during the winter months. The four mountain faces that surround this little resort have 132 runs between them ensuring that there’s something for everyone – from wide open pistes to steep expert runs. It is the perfect resort for people who love winter sports as there are also lots of other activities available both on and off the slopes.
Powder Skiing Watch
Due to it being further west than some of the resorts in the Rockies, you are guaranteed lighter and more frequent powder. This is the place to be on a powder day as you will have a high chance of skiing fresh tracks even though powder days are slightly busier due to Silver Star being the local’s favourite resort.
How do I get there?
It is only an hour’s drive from Kelowna Airport with regular shuttles to and from the airport. Kelowna is accessible by internal flights from either Calgary or Vancouver. Alternatively, our team can help organise a private transfer or a hire car.
Pure Powder Recommends
This accommodation offers luxury self-catering suites with ski-in/ski-out access to the main slope and gondola. It has arguably the best location in the resort, with large comfortable rooms and if you happen to book either into a one–, two– or three–bedroom suite, you are guaranteed your own private hot tub.
For Alternative Stays…
This place is perfect if you want to be a little further away from the main action. It is the resorts newest accommodation, with modern amenities and views of the pond or surrounding mountains. It is also perfect for families as it is close to the skating pond and tube town.
Pure Powder Loves
√ The convenience of the accommodations which are mostly ski-in/ski-out.
√ The variety of other winter activities that Silver Star has on offer – from cross country skiing (with Canada’s largest groomed trail network) to snow bikes, night skiing, ice skating and winter tubing.
Things to consider
– It is a very family orientated resort and so if you are a group of friends looking for a vibey après, it may not be the right place to go.
– It is a very small resort and most accommodations are self-catered only, however you can find some great restaurants down in the village if you would prefer to eat out.
