Champagne powder and varied terrain attracts every kind of skier and snowboarder to BC’s third largest ski area. Located high above British Columbia's Okanagan Valley and an hour’s drive north from the Kelowna International Airport (YLW), Silver Star is a haven for skiers and snowboarders looking for a big mountain experience away from the line-ups. With 3,269 acres of skiable terrain and 128 runs spread across four mountain faces, the variety of terrain is second to none. Long, perfectly groomed cruisers, steep powder filled chutes, long winch-cat black diamond runs, glades, back-country, Terrain Park and more combine to keep all levels of skiers and boarders entertained.
Silver Star is a popular destination for families seeking a true Canadian winter experience, whether it’s discovering winter for the first time, or reacquainting with fond childhood memories. Home to Canada’s first all-inclusive lift ticket and season pass, families are able to enjoy a wide variety of activities all included in their My1Pass alpine day lift ticket or season pass.
And when your legs give out, discover the true joy of being in a mid-mountain villageski out your door in the morning, and ski right back to your lodging at night.
After the kids have ripped up the mountain during the day, they can enjoy the challenge of indoor climbing at the National Altitude Training Centre, family night at Tube Town or a friendly game at Pinheads Bowling Alley. In addition, there are a host of free activities like arts and crafts nights or story time by the bonfire in the heart of the village.
Food and wine lovers will delight in Silver Star’s impressive lineup of dining options. Visit the Den for après ski and mouth-watering food or enjoy the best nightlife on the mountain at the Saloon. For the more discernible tastes, head to the Silver Grill for fine dining and great Okanagan wines. For the more adventurous, the resort features a number of specialty dining experiences including a snow cat ride under the stars to Paradise Camp or a snowshoe dinner tour to The Wild Horseman's Cabin.
One visit to Silver Star and you'll understand why so many people love to call it 'my mountain'.
