About Mike & Allison McElhone

We are a retired couple who visited 35-40 ski areas before selecting Silver Star as our permanent ski destination. We were captivated by the terrain, the village and the civility of the community. We now have many Silver Star ski friends...from near and far. We transitioned from renting to buying a condo and then to building Que Syrah Syrah to accommodate our 2 children, their spouses and our 4 grand children. Being on the hill with them every year is a dream come true. We will use our home for about 14 weeks every winter and would like to share it with others for the remainder of the season.

Mike & Allison McElhone purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Mike & Allison McElhone chose Okanagan Valley

After retirement we covered western Canada and U.S.A. looking for the perfect ski location. We hit Silver Star for a day, then a week, finally realizing that this was where we wanted to come year after year.We found a sense of civility and friendliness here that was not matched at any of the other ski areas we had visited. Our home was not built primarily as a rental property. It is mainly for our use together with our family and friends. We would like to share it during the time it would be vacant hoping you will become part of the Silver Star community.

What makes this chalet unique

Our 14 weeks at Silver Star every winter are filled with skiing, great evenings with friends and regular visits to our regular haunts, Long John's, 1609 and sleigh rides to the cabin in the woods. Having our own place just makes it so much better.

January powder!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples had a wonderful stay. This is a beautifully planned home with private areas and a well designed and furnished kitchen which alllowed us to enjoy cooking in for several nights, which we like to do. Easy to ski in and out. There were very comfortable beds and the master had good views.

This would also work nicely and comfortably for a family of 6 or 8. We were quite pleased, and of course the nightly new snow enhanced that too! The owners were easy to work with and have a great ski home in Silver Star.

Silver Star is in wine country. Touring the nearby wineries and doing lunch makes a nice break for sore muscles after a few days on the slopes.
