After 3 days of hard riding at revelstoke, Silverstar was a great mountain to choose for a leisurely day skiing and boarding. They have a small village at midpoint which is where you actually park. If you are going to grab breakfast or lunch I...More

Definitely one of my favorite mountains. It's Whistler for casual people. You are contained in a small village, with easy access to chair lifts. Nice long runs. I am an average snowboarder, and I have fun all day. Friendly staff. It's a bit of a...More

Coming from Ontario this was my first time skiing (actually snowboarding) a real mountain. It was great - nice long runs, and a fair amount of choice for intermediate riders. This makes it ideal for families in comparison to other mountains like Revelstoke in the...More

Great skiing holiday and white Christmas! Lines for ski lifts were not huge, snow was amazing and the après ski activities were all fun!

Short lift line ups on the way up to powdery snow. Lots of mountain to ski too. It can get chilly on the chair lifts so dress warmly. Did I mention the powder?

We took our 5 kids to SilverStar a few years ago for our first ski adventure. We had 2 ski lessons, everyone else picked it up fairly well but I was so nervous (and as a result unco) so I spent most of my time on the bunny hill while everyone else took off together each day to discover the mountain. 3 of the kids took me down Silver Queen 3 or 4 times, (I made it off the lift only once without a stack), and was absolutely pooping myself on the way down everytime. Yes I know it's a big wide open slope but to me it looked and felt SO steep. The last day of our 3 week holiday there, the family took me up somewhere higher (no idea where I went) but I took forever to get down and I had to pizza most of the time, I was absolutely flogged! So unfortunately fun wasn't had by all😞 I have seen footage of the peanut trail. Is this a subtle slope, would it be good for someone like me? Or do you allow alternatives to skis and snowboards? I would love to go with the family again to SilverStar but am I destined to be stuck in the coffee shop?
