BC’s Mountain Village – Silver Star

Silver Star

Look at the snow .. and all the new terrain!

More powder! Silver Star’s new glades were so much fun after a fresh dump of snow.

Located near the small city of Vernon, in British Columbia’s interior Okanagan, the purpose-designed resort of Silver Star is part of a chain of major ski areas that have defined the region into a snow destination. Each resort – Silver Star, Apex, Big White and Sun Peaks has its own mountain culture, yet together (something that should be offered as a package) they help maintain BC’s position as truly world-class mountain destination.

Silver Star has grown over the years and I ski there fairly often, particularly due to close friends in Vernon. On this visit, the snow was excellent and the newly opened glades (ski / snowboard-friendly treed areas) have made the mountain much more appealing.
