When the lifts close, there are loads of family events and activities for all ages, plus an array of restaurants and bars to choose from.

Dry champagne powder and stunning terrain

Explore 3,269 acres (1,323 hectares) of varied terrain serviced by 12 lifts. Skiers of all levels love the perfectly groomed runs and wide open spaces of Vance Creek. But, if you want to be challenged, jump on the high speed Powder Gulch Quad and access the double black diamonds and steep chutes on the back side.

ROCKSTAR Park is the most progressive terrain park in BC. It’s a winter playground for skiers of all levels with plenty of small and big jumps and a huge selection of features to master your tricks on.

Each night, our award winning grooming team delivers immaculately groomed runs. Nightly winch-cat grooming on the back side, creates steep fall line cruising that will leave you breathless.

When the sun goes down the lights come on at Silver Star. Every Friday and Saturday night, we provide 4 km’s of groomed and lit trails for night skiing accessed by the Summit and Silver Queen Chairs. For more on night skiing click here.
