We enjoyed staying here for 2 weeks as part of the Piping Hot Summer Drummer. The room was very comfortable and cozy. Kitchen was well used. Service was great with Russ doing all he could to help us in any way possible. Way to go Russ!! It was a great time away, thanks! :)

Room Tip: Make sure you get a fan for the summer months! Also, try and get a room on the north side in the s...

We held our annual spring scrapbook crop here - and once again, were not disappointed! We choose different rooms - on the same floor as the restaurant. It was easy to access, kitchens were well equiped for us to make our meals and snacks and lots of crop space (1 large table per person). General Manager Russell Haubrich and his staff made sure we hade everything we needed - and he even checked in with us several times throughout the weekend to ensure we were satisfied. And it was great to enjoy the outdoor hot tub while it was gently snowing - perfect way to soothe our aching muscles. We also enjoyed the small touches - locally made soap in each room with the hotel's signature scent, lots of towels and extra pillows available without having to call down to housekeeping. Thank you again Russ and staff - we are already planning our October scrapbook crop - and it will be at Vance Creek!

Room Tip: We had room 202 - no stairs if you have difficulty with mobility. Great view of the village plus a d...

Stayed here for 7 days in Feb 2013. The village is small but has everything you want for a week of skiing. The rooms/apartments are comfortable and much larger than the equivalent that can be found in european resorts.
Weekend buffet breakfast at the Bulldog is well worth it. For lunch/dinner (or supper in Canada). Long John's pub has great food.
One place we would aviod in future is Down Under (beneath The Bulldog) as the barman thought it was normal to serve you the overpriced main course and then finish it off with the antipasta. As you are more or less confined to the resort the prices are higher than in the rest of British Columbia.
If you are limited to peak time skiing then Canada is worth considering as it is not much more than europe at these times and you get wide open slopes with no queing for chairlifts etc.

First time skiing at Silver Star – we had 16 wonderful days accommodated in the most convenient location for the best skiing in a winter wonderland experience.
A family of 3 we stayed in unit 305 – this has a great view & a balcony overlooking the main village square & beautiful sunrise over the valley on the clear days -– we have many beautiful sunrise photos taken from our balcony. It has 2 very comfy queen beds in a separate bedroom with a full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge area with a fold out sofa bed which our son enjoyed sleeping in (he could watch TV without disturbing us). Every morning the bakery smells from below us wafted through our room, great way to wake up! We loved being able to look out our window and see the ski school directly opposite us and we could see what activity was happening in the main village area.
Easiest ski in, ski out setup with a locker room located downstairs next to the back door – made it so easy to come in for lunch or siesta.
The room is central to the shops, ski school and Bugaboos Bakery is directly downstairs where we indulged in many coffees & pastries – yummy bread here too!
The staff were very friendly, caring and helpful for all our needs – couldn’t ask for better service. When my wife was briefly unwell during our stay the staff could not have been more accommodating and caring.
The snow & skiing were exceptional, with this mountain enabling skiers with varying levels of experience to ski together. Advanced skiers could peel off a blue or green run to a choice of many black runs to meet an intermediate skier at the bottom of the chair lift. We were lucky to experience several fresh powder days during our stay. The skiing was so good we didn’t get to all the other activities I would have liked – cross country skiing I’m told is spectacular here.
The ski school instructors were outstanding- I learnt so much.
Our friends – a family of four had adjoining / connected rooms 204 & 205 downstairs. This had almost direct access to locker & back door for perfect ski in - ski out access. Their rooms were spacious with a king size bed in one bedroom, 2 queen beds in the other, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge, balcony.
Definitely recommend staying in these perfectly located rooms. We are already planning our next visit back here!

Stayed in a Chilcoot 1 bedroom condo over Christmas break. Very comfortable, well equipped kitchen, spacious living room with cozy fireplace. The bedroom has a queen bed and an alcove with bunk beds for kids. There was a pullout sofa in living room, but we didn't use it. Unit faced north, looking uphill towards Silver Creek lodge - not much of a view, but plenty of light came into bedroom and living area.

The kitchenette is well equipped, includes dishwasher, all kinds of pots, pans, cooking utensils, toaster, microwave, kettle, everything you'd need to cook or bake (only exception: no backing sheet to make those pillsbury cinnamon rolls) There is dining table which seats 6. The bathroom is fine: basic. Ski lockers are indoors on the ground floor, very convenient.

Only problem is twice we blew a fuse when we had the microwave and the kettle on at the same time. Maintenance came to flip the breaker switch, small inconvenience, no problem.

Housekeeping here is not like in a hotel: They just empty the garbage and change towels if needed. They are in and out in less than 5 minutes. One day they didn't come at all so we emptied our own garbage can - not a big deal.

The owners of our condo also equipped it with a few board games, yahtzee, playing cards etc - nice welcoming touch!



There are 2 hot tubs on the roof - several times we were the only ones in a hot tub, but with 2 hot tubs, even when another group is out there, we still got a tub to ourselves. The hot tubs were perfect temperature for kids and for me: Very warm, but not scalding hot - just the way I like it, (but some people may say the hot tub was not burning-hot enough..)

Exceptional storage: plenty of space for everyone's clothes and ski gear: bedroom had 2 dressers with 6 drawers each and 2 rather large night tables with 3 drawers each. That's 18 drawers: more than 4 drawers per person for a family of 4, so everyone has a place to keep organized for quick and easy time getting ready and out the door FAST each morning. 4 big cubbies were by the kids bunks. No fussing around looking for one kids' mitts or PJs or bathing suit.. Also good having a rack for outdoor clothes by the entrance and another closet for indoor clothes in the bedroom.

Location is great: in the village center: Ski in, ski out, very convenient to stop off at your condo for a quick lunch then back on the slopes. Chilcoot is 3-minute walk from Bugaboos, maybe the best bakery in the Okanagan - great breakfast pastries! Short 4-minute walk to the pond and to tube-town for evening action.



The same staff run Vance Creek and Chilcoot - they are always very helpful and friendly (in fact everyone in Silver Star is very friendly ) We come back to Silver Star because the snow is dry, the place is very family-friendly, and both downhill AND cross-country skiing are superb, and even over Christmas, it's not overly crowded. The outdoor skating on the huge pond is fantastic. Silverstar is a family place - mostly families with kids, everyone goes to bed early to hit the slopes early

After a disappointing double booking at another hotel on the hill, our group moved over to Vance Creek for a girls weekend getaway. We checked in early on Friday - and from then until we left Sunday, we were very pleased with the location, the rooms, the staff and the view! We shared three 'apartments' each that had two separate bedrooms that were joined by an open plan kitchen, eating area and living room. The beds were comfortable although I missed having a duvet. Bathrooms were very clean, as was the whole unit. The kitchen was almost as well equipped as our home kitchen - included wineglasses, serving bowls - anything you would need to cook a meal and enjoy it in style. Each bedroom and the living area had a tv and there was a nice gas fireplace in the main living area. The bedrooms had a great view of the complext - and we enjoyed a snowstorm while we were enjoying our weekend away. And although it was off season with limited staff, when we couldn't get our heat to come on - it was a quick phone call and the manager was up to find a solution. Thanks Russell and staff - we are already looking forward to a return weekend in April.

Room Tip: Higher floor has a better view :)

Flew into Kelowna from Calgary after being treated, playing with snow in Fernie, Sunshine, Lake Louise and Kicking Horse. Surely Canada could not have more to offer. HA! The shuttles journey, about an hr, passes frozen lakes, vineyards, orchards covered in snow, through Vernon and finally winding up to the resort of Silver Star. Snowing BIG flakes . Reception very friendly and answered usual questions. Lockers included with my first fight with my most hated object on the planet, a combination lock. Turn left ... turn right.... and right..... and... Get the Idea? How many times I have had to do this again and again. AHHHH. Ski out ski in. yep so easy.Room booked by travel agent who said was very expensive therefore only put me here for 4 nights. Room very comfortable, two queen beds( comfortable) in separate room, lounge kitchenete. Balcony with heaps of snow. Shop with beer and foods almost next door. Rentals good quality. Mountain a BIG YES. Over the back is the Dark Side. Here wonderfull groomed black runs are found. Groomers are winched up the trails. Tree play. Ice slides. Restaurants but miss an adult only bar. Sister field to Big White Two hours away the other side of Kelowna.
Would have liked to have stayed much much longer.
