Silver Star Mountain Resort
Silver Star Mountain Resort is the most northerly winter playground in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.

Those who journey to Silver Star are pleasantly surprised by the distinctive vacation experience found at “the Star” and claim ownership. With its uniquely visual and colourful Victorian village, Silver Star strives to make your family holiday both memorable and carefree with its genuine friendliness and exceptional customer service. With a swirling array of colours against a backdrop of fresh white snow, Silver Star's Victorian-inspired village comes straight from the pages of a Dickens novel. Lit up at night, it's a true ski and winter wonderland.

Over 23 feet of dry, Okanagan powder falls from the heavens every year on the long rolling cruisers that are groomed to perfection each and every morning. Awarded ‘Ski Resort of the Year’, the mountain has 3 distinct faces, and 115 runs, gladed areas, and Telus Park, all serviced by express lifts. Plus over 100 kms of Nordic trails and night skiing - something to suit every level of skier.

Thrill seekers float through knee-deep powder on the challenging black and double-black diamond runs on “the dark side of the star”, Putnam Creek. TELUS Park, awarded “Best New Terrain Park” by Ski Canada, is where you can challenge yourself on the half-pipe, ride the rails and kickers in the terrain park, and bank the corners on the skier/boarder cross course.

The village is located mid-mountain, which means that all the accommodation, restaurants, pubs and shopping are truly ski-in ski-out. If you want to relax, you can soak in your private hot tub or enjoy an afternoon at the on-mountain day spa. The focus is on family at Silver Star, and there are lots of great activities after a day on the slopes, including the snow tubing park, the natural frozen outdoor pond for skating or playing hockey, snowmobile tours, and indoor rock climbing. There are fireworks shows, movie nights, kid’s carnival nights, family bingo, Silver Star Idol, and many other events every night of the week, all a snowball’s throw away from your ski-in ski-out accommodation. It’s not hard to see why Silver Star is a destination not to missed.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is located 14 miles (22 km) northeast of Vernon. From Vernon drive north on Highway 97 and turn east on Silver Star Road. There are daily flights to Kelowna from most major Canadian cities including non-stop flights from Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
