A Taste of Vintage Champagne
We love the skiing at Silver Star. It's famed for it's light, dry champagne powder that has to be experienced to be believed. Silver Star is one of Canada's oldest ski areas, with corduroy groomed runs alongside steep ungroomed back bowl double blacks, providing skiing for all levels.
Knight Star Lodge sits on the Knoll above Silverwoods, the most recent area opened that has a mix of groomed runs and glade skiing. Aberdeen skiiway runs directly below the house, giving easy ski-out access to both alpine and nordic trails. The combination of blue and black runs and the top of the SIlverwoods lift alongside gives Knight Star it's own ski area. Ski out for an hour or less!
Alternatively, ski down to the Comet six pack and spend the day exploring the whole of Silver Star's ski area. The front side, with runs above and below the village packs a surprising number of routes through trees that are often snow covered and frozen, forming "snow ghosts".
Ski over the top of Vance Creek and access the Back Side, centred around the back bowl with it's ungroomed double blacks and long groomed blues. When there is deep powder, even the most skilled skier will find the Back Side challenging.
With Silver Star's Nordic runs and the adjoining Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre, you have access to Canada's largest daily groomed cross-country trail network. We love that within minutes you can find yourself in complete silence and solitude amongst the trees of the Okanagan hills.
