About Gavin Parsons
This is Gavin Parsons Homes Ltd personal winter ski home. We have been building homes on Silver Star Mountain for twenty five years, including two townhouse projects, a condominium and over thirty homes. This is our third winter home on Silver Star. We learned to ski on the mountain and our children spent the winters there. They both were ski instructors at one time. We have located our home in what we think is the brightest area and best ski access location on the mountain.
Gavin Parsons purchased this Chalet in 2012
Why Gavin Parsons chose Vernon
Alpine Meadows, the former mid-T ski area, is the best ski in/out residential area on Silver Star Mountain. Our property backs on the Christmas Bowl/shute runs. We have years of building and skiing experience and know that when skiing, chalet location is everything.

Great location. Great property. Great host.
We had 2 families for a great ski week and the property was everything as described. Perfect ski-in, ski-out location. Beautiful great room w/ large kitchen. Nice master and semi-master (shared bath with 3rd bedroom) were all great. Only surprise was there there was no local TV or cable (we were hoping to watch the Olympics) and otherwise would have liked having no TV channels. WIFI worked great and everything was clean and top notch. We would not hesitate to book this place again. Thanks Gavin.
Thank you for your complimentary review. We are glad your families enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you feedback on the lack of local T.V. We will take your opinion into consideration for the future.

What more could you ask for? Accommodations were clean, spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and to top it all off at a great location. We will be back!
We had a fun week of lots of snow and relaxing evenings at the house.
Our group of seven adults had a great time. Easy ski in- ski out. House worked well for us - 3 couples and one single. Unable to ski because of a recent injury, one person enjoyed the snow shoeing around the various routes.
Wonderful home in a wonderful location
We have stayed on Silver Star mountain for many years each December, in different rental properties. Arnica Lodge has been our favorite. We had five adults and five children in tow and found the home very spacious with its three levels. All of the children enjoyed staying on the lowest floor with the bedroom and hide-a-bed and their own bathroom, even though there was room for some of them upstairs where the adults slept. The kitchen was stocked with all needed items and more and the living area was very conducive to relaxation. The view up the mountain from the dining area, living area and hot tub was a treat! We enjoyed skiing down Christmas Bowl or Chute straight to our house at the end of the day and the easy ski to the village and Comet Express in the morning. The garage was ideal for removing our ski gear and storing our equipment. Gavin and Marlene were a pleasure to work with regarding the rental and payment and easy to connect with as needed. I highly recommend this home for a Silver Star vacation!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are glad you had such a good time on our hill.
Comfortable family home
We just rented this home for 8 days over Christmas. We live in CA but are originally from the Okanagan and our families still reside there. We are a family of 4 and our retired parents joined us as at this home. This house is very comfortably furnished and we loved the ski out option from his home. Our retired parents who no longer ski enjoyed watching the people skiing and snow boarding from the living room window and from the hot tub. The views are truly beautiful from this home. Our retired parents enjoyed the walk down to the village and back each day. My two boys, ages 8 and 10, who just learned to ski last year at Silver Star last year, loved their bunk beds and also the TV room in the lower area of the house. There were a few items broken/missing in the kitchen and we let the owner know about this items on the day we were checking out and he informed us they were promptly replaced that day. All of family members commented about what a relaxing stay they had a this home. We would definitely recommend this home!
