When I first saw the SilverStar Village, I felt like I had stepped back in time. The village consists of only a few colorful buildings with wooden walks surrounding each one. What I liked most about it was that it felt that the size of the village was by design and you might even run in to the owner of the resort, who is still very much a part of preserving the authenticity of SilverStar. Everyone knows everyone and all the shop and restaurant owners are friends and most have lived there for decades. 

They don't plow the snow through the village. Instead, they groom it so you can actually ski right through! 

SilverStar offers crowd-free skiing. Truly. You'll feel like they closed the runs for just you while skiing. There's everything from long, wide groomers to the back bowl, which is ideal for the advanced skier. Take advantage of the My1Pass which includes skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, tubing and ice skating! 

Travel is also pretty simple. It's only an hour away from the Kelowna airport. The lodging options that are available are extremely comfortable and range anywhere from a hotel room to condos.

I tour a lot of resorts, and I always have my eyes open for ski areas that pack a lot of value into a family ski experience. I know how expensive it can be! SilverStar really impressed me when when I visited it. It has 3,265 skiable acres with a good mix of terrain for every level of ability, really affordable lodging and offers lots to do. There is snowshoeing, ice skating, great cross country skiing and awesome terrain parks.

They also have night skiing, a tubing park and the newest addition...PINHEAD BOWLING! The world's first ski-in, ski-out ten pin bowling experience. I have never seen that in any other ski area! If you decide to give SilverStar a try, be sure to save a day or two and visit the Sparkling Hill Resort in Kelowna with its 3.5 million crystals infused throughout the hotel and spa, its infinity pool, dozens of steam baths, and the continent's first cold sauna. You will not be disappointed! Call me and let me guide you through a trip to this gem in British Columbia!
