Over 700cm of the Okanagan's light dry powder snow falls on the slopes of Silver Star every year. Everyone knows all natural is the way to go.
The comfortable daytime temperatures average -3 C (27 F), is cold enough to keep the snow light and fluffy, yet perfect for skiing, riding, cross country skiing and winter activities.
Some people believe that you can’t be all things for all people, but with over 3000 skiable acres we think we can. There’s the immaculately groomed cruisers of Vance Creek, playful gladed areas in Silver Woods and the challenging steeps of the infamous Putnam Creek.
Finish your day on the slopes by skiing right to your door, relax by the fire with a glass of local Okanagan wine and soak those tired legs in your own private hot tub…it doesn’t get any better than this. From the luxurious Snowbird Lodge, the unique Victorian Vacation Homes, slopeside condos and hotels, we really do have it all.
The mountains of British Columbia were once home to vibrant gold and silver mining towns. The prize people are now after is pure white, but the character and charm of Silver Star’s village is a page from the past with its own unique twist. The buildings are all painted vibrant colours creating a magical setting like no other.
Fly non-stop from Sydney to Vancouver…a short one hour flight to Kelowna and then it’s only an hour from the airport to the silky snow of Silver Star…it’s up to you at that point…unpack or hit the slopes.
We all know that higher learning can forward your career.

Kids need their own place to play and have fun while learning…the team at the Star Kids Centre will have your kids playing, laughing and exploring the entire mountain in no time.
After the day on the slopes the good times are not over. Go tubing, skating, snowmobiling, play bingo with the kids, discover your hidden singing talents, or discover you should have left them hidden… It’s all in the name of fun.
First you start with a regular dose of all natural snow, add an average temperature of -5 and the final ingredient…a fleet of modern grooming equipment piloted by some of the worlds best. The result, sorry, you need to come and see for yourself.
