Destination guide

Silver Star Mountain _ adventure on high

Whether you're seeking out Silver Star Mountain vacation rentals with pine-studded hiking trails weaving away from the doorstep, or slope-side chalets with ski-in access to the pistes, you can rest assured this accomplished resort on the edge of the Columbia Mountains won't disappoint. When the snows fall between November and April, the whole place is a playground of powder hounds _ think Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, snowtubing and snowshoeing. When the ice thaws, hikers and bikers come to hit the beautiful reaches of the Shuswap Highland.

Things to do

Resort draws on Silver Star Mountain

With 700 centimeters of annual snowfall on average, a whopping 132 marked downhill runs and more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain, the Silver Star Mountain Resort is up there with the best in British Columbia _ and this is the home of the town of Whistler, remember. On white-outs, a trip to the nearby town of Vernon is in order. That's where you'll discover the hands-on exhibits of the Okanagan Science Center, and the immersive Historic O'Keefe Ranch with its relics from the old land-tilling days of BC.

Activities

Fun in the snow on Silver Star Mountain

The dangling chairlifts and groomed pistes _ spread over 4 separate areas, no less _ of the Silver Star Mountain Resort make this one a veritable wonderland for skiers, snowboarders, snow tubers and Nordic walkers. The cross-country skiing is considered some of the best on the whole globe, while there's a good spread of beginner and expert runs to cater for riders at both ends of the spectrum. Be sure to look out for Silver Star Mountain vacation rentals at the base of the gondolas if you're eager to get on the slopes this winter.

Weather

Waiting for the powder on Silver Star Mountain

When the chairlifts swing into action and the groomed alpine pistes open for the winter season, Silver Star Mountain vacation rentals get packed out with sportsters eager to carve and conquer some of the top runs in the Columbia Mountains. To get your own taste of the powder, be sure to book your stay between the months of November and March. Summertime offers its own joys, with mile upon mile of hiking and mountain biking opening through the nearby valleys of the Monashee Mountains.

Natural features

The cusp of the Columbia ranges in Silver Star Mountain

Silver Star tumbles down from the western edge of the Columbia Mountains, part of a subrange called the Monashee Mountains. It's a truly handsome enclave, hidden away between snow-mantled peaks in the depths of BC. The town itself is surrounded by the reserves of the Silver Star Provincial Park, which extend in blankets of fir forests out to the horizon. They are occasionally pockmarked by mountain lakes, and come trodden by black bears, moose and elusive lynxes.
