Silver Star Mountain Resort

Silver Star Mountain Resort continues to be my favorite Canadian destination resorts. I highly recommend a winter getaway to this fantastic resort - see for yourself why it continues to get rates as one of the best small resorts in North America year after year.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is located 22km NE of Vernon, BC, in the Thompson Okanagan.

Walking through Silver Star’s village is like taking a step back in time and entering a Dicken’s novel. Turrets, ginger-breading, wooden boardwalks, vivid colours and wood siding are just a few of the elaborate architectural details you’ll see. The village is perfectly positioned mid-mountain – so all accommodation is ski-to, ski-from.

The village has a wide-variety of dining options from quick-serve to find dining. Long John’s Pub in the Lord Aberdeen Hotel is perfect for apres-ski, and you’re looking for late-night fun, visit The Saloon in the Vance Creek Hotel.

Out on the mountain, there are over 2,500 skiable acres – you’ll find long rolling green runs for the beginner, groomed cruisers and glade skiing for the intermediates, and double-black diamond chutes for the advanced. There’s also a great terrain park and half-pipe. Silver Star receives over 23 feet of snow each year, which means you have a pretty good chance of finding good powder most days.

The outdoor fun continues with snowshoeing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, tubing and cross-country skiing. Inside there is a rock climbing wall, day-spa, art gallery, shopping and yoga.

Silver Star Mountain Resort continues to be my favorite Canadian destination resorts. I highly recommend a winter getaway to this fantastic resort – see for yourself why it continues to get rates as one of the best small resorts in North America year after year.
