We all know that SilverStar Mountain Resort in Canada is home to some seriously good powder skiing but did you know this….

SilverStar is the third largest ski area in British Columbia

SilverStar boasts 3269 acres of skiable terrain including four distinct mountain faces and 132 runs. The progressive terrain is perfect for learning and for the more adventurous, the backside of the mountain is an un-crowded paradise of over 1,900 acres of steep and deep, black and double black diamond runs.

SilverStar is twice as good in February and March

SilverStar has long been a favourite for Australian families in January thanks to southern summer school holidays. Which makes February and March hidden gems with no lift queues, a deeper snow base, consistent snowfalls, longer daylight hours, and cheaper airfares. Why wouldn’t you?

SilverStar has a new Academy Ski Program to improve your skills

The all-new SilverStar SnowSports Academy is ‘The Ultimate Canadian Winter Adventure’. The new program that is the brainchild of SilverStar’s award winning Snowsports School.

The SnowSports Academy is a 5-day ski/board development program combining over 23 hours of top tier on-snow tuition, with fun off- snow social experiences. Available for adults over 3 weeks in January, February and March during the 2016/17 winter season, the Academy will be expanded to accommodate all age groups throughout the 2017/2018 winter.

SilverStar has a ski in ski out 10 pin bowling alley

Ski in, bowl a few balls down the 10 pin alley and ski out. Pinheads Bowling has four fully computerized laser 10 pin bowling lanes with touch screen smart computers and the Final Run cafe and bar.


SilverStar has over 15kms of Fat Biking trails

Grab a fat tyre bike and hit the trail. Included as an activity in the all-inclusive My1Pass Lift ticket, Fat Biking is an exhilarating way to see more of SilverStar’s surrounding forests, and experience the beauty and serenity of the Canadian outdoors. SilverStar’s summer cross-country mountain bike and walking trails provide the perfect landscape in winter to take you on a breathtaking adventure.



A Silver Star lift pass also includes tubing, cross country and ice skating

Your Silver Star lift pass includes skiing, snowboarding, tubing (tubes included), skating (including skate rental), cross country skiing, snowshoe and fat bike trails. Seven adventures all for the price of one.


Silver Star is the home mountain to Para Olympic Gold & Silver Medalist Josh Dueck

Josh is a Canadian living legend and he calls Silver Star his home mountain. Look out for him hitting up the powder and piste.

Silver Star has mini snow mobiles for the kids

Silver Stars Mini Sleds are made for, well, kids. Mini sledders aged 6 to 12 years of age can hit up the designated fenced track on board the Arctic Cat FireCat F120s.


Coffee – the way the Australians like it

Thank god for baristas. SilverStar understands the Aussie need for good specialty coffee brewed right and offers barista made coffee throughout the 18 bars, restaurants and cafes at the resort. Inhale the coveted warm danishes at Coffee +, inside the Town Hall, with one of 20 specialty coffees on offer to get you fueled for the slopes.
