About the Ski Resort

Silver Star Mountain Resort is a scenic, year-round family vacation destination featuring an abundance of snow during winter, numerous adventure activities during summer and a cozy, comfortable and welcoming village every season.

Two mountain faces, Vance Creek and Putnam Creek, are blanketed with an average annual snowfall of 23 feet , providing an average snow pack of 245cm (8 ft). The feather-light snow is groomed to perfection with plenty left over for the powder hounds, especially in the 300 acres of open bowl or glade terrain.

Vance Creek, the south face, features predominantly intermediate and novice
terrain with a few expert options accessed from the summit.

Putnam Creek, the north face, is home to some of the most challenging terrain found anywhere. Expert runs plummet through narrow gullies and exhilarating chutes, and there are 11 double black diamond runs.

Rated as the most informative and friendly ski school in Western Canada, the
Silver Star Mountain Ski School provides a variety of skiing, snowboard and
cross-country skiing programs. With a staff of 85 professionally trained and
certified professionals, every level will be sure to improve -- in a relaxed
and fun atmosphere.

The charming Victorian-era village offers an array of friendly apres ski
spots, hotels, restaurants and shops -- all radiating a welcome warmth. A
fine selection of hotels, condominiums and vacation homes feature
ski-in/ski-out convenience. And dining options range from casual and
comfortable dining room settings to light meals and snacks. Families are
always welcome and prices are modest.

Located 20 km (12 miles) northeast of Vernon, British Columbia, Silver Star
Mountain Resort is easily accessed via air and road from the gateway cities
of Vancouver and Calgary and is also just a one hour from Kelowna.

Ski Resort directions

Located northeast 22 km (12 miles) of Vernon in British Columbia, making it easily accessible. Drive or fly into Kelowna’s International Airport and take a quick shuttle, or maybe try the helicopter to get you to the resort. Many of the major airlines have daily direct flights from many major cities so you have plenty of traveling options. From Big White Ski Resort you can experience Silver Star for the day using the inter-mountain day trip shuttle. Plus, once you arrive you won’t need a car because Silver Star is pedestrian only and everything you need is close by. We even offer an in-resort shuttle service if your legs are too tired after a long day on the slopes. Locals can take advantage of the Silver Star Ski Bus.
